Dictionary of National Biography, 1885-1900/Green, James (fl.1743)

GREEN, JAMES (fl. 1743), organist at Hull, published in 1724 'A Book of Psalmody; containing chanting tunes … and the Reading Psalms with thirteen Anthems and a great variety of Psalm tunes in four parts … [London], and sold by the booksellers at Hull, Lincoln, Lowth, and Gainsborough.' The volume opens with instructions. It reached its eleventh edition in 1751. A hymn for two voices, 'When all Thy Mercies,' published about 1790, and four catches in Warren's 'Collection,' are ascribed to James Green, who is not to be confounded with Henry Green, the blind organist (d. 1741).
