Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Michael Arnold Perry (1942-1996) was one of the UK's leading hymnwriters of the 20th century. He was closely associated with Jubilate Hymns. Michael Perry was born in Beckenham, Kent on 8 March 1942. He was educated at Dulwich College and went on to study at University College London; Oak Hill Theological College, London; Ridley Hall, Cambridge; and University of Southampton.It was during his student days at Oak Hill in 1964 that he wrote his best-known hymn, the Calypso Carol, the first line of which is "See him lying on a bed of straw." He wrote this for a college concert, and it only became famous by accident when Cliff Richard substituted it for a missing recording in a radio show.show more
