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

Died: Ju­ly 1, 1878, near Ge­ne­va, Switz­er­land.

Buried: Mon­ne­tier, Sa­voy, Switz­er­land.

Winkworth lived 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.
