Editorial Note: The following list includes names of the women hymn writers and tune composers whose works were included in the 1991 Baptist Hymnal. The women's names are listed as they appear in the hymnal index. The titles of the hymn texts they wrote are enclosed in quotation marks, and the titles of the tunes they composed are capitalized. The women whose names appear below include many Baptists, but they also represent a wide variety of denominational traditions, including the Methodist, Presbyterian, Episcopalian, and Anglican traditions, and thereby point to the importance of ecumenism in the Baptist tradition. This significant list also demonstrates the historic and continuing influence that women have had on Baptist church music, Baptist worship, and Baptist theology.

William J. Reynolds is retired professor of church music, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He lives in Nashville, Tennessee.
