Some 60 years ago in the Methodist church which I attended, the organist introduced us to a new tune for Faber's hymn, "Souls of men why will ye scatter like a flock of frightened sheep". I only ever saw it as a handwritten scrap of paper with a rather amateur harmonisation. It became a favourite, in spite of its wide vocal range.

 

As I remember it, it goes like this:

Does anyone know who wrote it and if it has been published?
