I am getting married in two weeks time and have chosen the hymn 'Come Down O Love Divine' for the service. However, the tune we want is not the usual Vaughan Williams tune and I am having real difficulties finding the name of the composer/a copy of the score for the tune we want. I know it is a familiar tune, but have absolutely no other information.

Does anyone know the names of anyone else who composed tunes to this hymn? Or can you direct me to anyone who might be able to help?

The Oremus Hymnal gives "Music: Down Ampney, North Petherton". I presume the second tune is what you're after. This: http://www.ely.anglican.org/news/publicity/commonpraise.html implies that the new Common Praise hymn book uses North Petherton.
