- The following article is from the Psalter Hymnal Handbook.
French romanticist composer Charles F. Gounod wrote LUX PRIMA, which means "first light" in Latin. When the Franco-Prussian War broke out in 1870, Gounod left his native Paris and settled in England for five years. This sturdy tune was published in the Scottish Hymnary in 1872.
