The wonderful melody to the hymn ‘Hills of the North, Rejoice’, written by Martin Shaw (1878-1958), has the curious name of Little Cornard. This was the village in Suffolk where Shaw spent his honeymoon. Shaw studied with Stanford, an Irish composer and organist, and aimed to raise the standard of hymn tunes, likening some Victorian hymn tunes to ‘over-ripe bananas’ – oh dear!
