Biography

Nicholas Brady was the incumbent of St. Katherine Cree and a prebendary of Cork Cathedral. He was the co-author, with Nahum Tate, of A new version of the psalms of David, fitted to the tunes used in churches, which was first published in 1696 (This collection's title was usually shortened to 'the New Version' ). He also composed tunes in this book's successor, A Supplement to A New Version….

The New Version was contrasted with the Old Version, the metrical psalter based on the work of Thomas Sternhold and John Hopkins, and published by John Day as The whole booke of psalmes in 1562: together, the 'Old Version' and 'New Version' were the main metrical psalters used in English parish churches in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
