Jessie Seymour Irvine (26 July 1836 – 2 September 1887) was the daughter of a Church of Scotland parish minister who served at Crimond in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Among her compositions was the tune Crimond, which is best known as one setting for the words of Psalm 23: “The Lord’s my Shepherd”. It is believed that Irvine wrote the tune while still in her teens, as an exercise for an organ class she was attending. This arrangement combines band and pipes.
