Thread Name: British Grenadiers-why is tune called Sheffield?
Subject: RE: British Grenadiers — Sheffield, why?
Most hymn tunes with place-names are named because of where they were written, or where their composer hailed from. Do we know who wrote this melody?

(obligatory thread-creep: Is there a difference between a tune, a melody, and an air?)
