1827–1878
portrait

Sep­tem­ber 13, 1827, Ely Place, Hol­born, Lon­don, Eng­land.

Ju­ly 1, 1878, near Ge­ne­va, Switz­er­land.

Mon­ne­tier, Sa­voy, Switz­er­land.

Winkworth spent most of her life in Man­ches­ter, Eng­land. The not­a­ble ex­cep­tion was the year she spent in Dres­den, Ger­ma­ny.

Around 1854, she pub­lished Lyra Ger­man­i­ca, con­tain­ing num­er­ous Ger­man hymns trans­lat­ed in­to English. She went on to pub­lish an­oth­er ser­ies of Ger­man hymns in 1858. In 1863, she came out with The Cho­rale Book for Eng­land, and in 1869, Chris­tian Sing­ers of Ger­ma­ny.

More than any other sing­le per­son, she helped bring the Ger­man chor­ale tra­di­tion to the Eng­lish speak­ing world.
