Hymn #212: O Jesus Christ, May Grateful Hymns
David Evans (1874-1948) composed CHARTERHOUSE for a different text in Revised Church Hymnary (1927). Evans was the editor and a member of the revision committee for this work, representing his native Wales. The hymnbook sought to update church music in use in Great Britain.
David Evans served from 1903 until 1939 as professor of music at University College in Cardiff, Wales, where he also received his education. In addition, he was senior professor at the University of Wales. He died shortly after conducting a Gymanfa Ganu (singing festival) near Wrexham in 1948.
