Summary

Winkworth's translations are "invariably faithful, and for the most part both terse and delicate;" (Martineau) "the most widely used of any from that language, and have had more to do with the modern revival of the English use of German hymns than the versions of any other writer." [Julian's Dictionary of Hymnology]
