Evelyn Renatus Hasse (June 11, 1855-May 28, 1915), born at Ockbrook Derby, England, United Kingdom, was a son of the Reverend Alexander Cossart Hasse (December 30, 1813-December 12, 1894) and Marie Elisabeth Gottiebe von Bulow (January 4, 1824-1861).  Thus Evelyn was a grandson of Christian Friedrich Hasse (1771-May 1, 1831), a German-English Moravian composer and educator.  In March 1884 the hymn writer and translator married Mary Emma Nelson (died in 1913).  He, a minister, helped to found a school (at Bristol) for foreign missions, became a bishop in 1904, began to serve as a provincial elder two years later, and worked on The Liturgy and Canticles (1914) of the Moravian Church in Great Britain and Ireland.  He died at Hampshire, England.

Anna Bernadine Dorothy Hoppe (1889-1941), of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was one of the best hymn writers and translators the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) produced.  Her texts seem to have fallen out of favor with editorial committees recent North American Lutheran hymnals, however.  My survey of the most recent denominational hymnals (1993-2006) among North American Lutherans has yielded the following results:

  1. Evangelical Lutheran Hymnary (1996, The Evangelical Lutheran Synod) and Evangelical Lutheran Worship (2006, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America)–no Hoppe hymns;
  2. Christian Worship:  A Lutheran Hymnal (1993, the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod) and Lutheran Service Book (2006, The Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod)–one Hoppe hymn each; and
  3. Ambassador Hymnal for Lutheran Worship (1994, Association of Free Lutheran Congregations)–two Hoppe hymns.

Also, The Covenant Hymnal:  A Worshipbook (1996, the Evangelical Covenant Church of America, a close relation to Scandinavian Lutheranism) contains one Hoppe hymn.

This Night a Wondrous Revelation:

Thou Goest to Jerusalem:

Thou Hast Indeed Made Manifest:
