William Williams

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents a selection of William Williams's hymns. Williams was ordained as a deacon at St. David's in August 1740, after which he served as a curate at Llanwrytd and Llanddewi Abergwesyn in Brecknockshire. However, he was denied the title of an Anglican minister in 1743 due to his itinerant preaching and support of the ministries of Howell Harris and Daniel Rowland. When Harris and Rowland feuded over leadership of Welsh Methodism in the mid-1740s, Williams sided with the latter. His hymns include Alleluia (1744), the three-part Hosanna i Fab Dafydd (“Hosanna to the Son of David”), and the two-part Gloria in Excelsis (1771–1772).
