I'm looking for the provenance of a tune that Alice Parker's Melodious Grace Hymnal attributes to Isaac Watts. (#99; the tune name is given as Doxology, and the text is "O for a shout of sacred joy".)
I go to hymnary.org and type "Watts" in the search engine under the Person Name field. It returns eleven hits. I click on the one I think I'm looking for, and check "Pre-1979". The engine grinds away and finally returns this:
People › [Isaac Watts, 1674-1748] › Texts

... which strikes me as even more ludicrous than the notion that Watts composed the tune I'm reading up on.
Did I make some obvious error, or is this a glitch in the new search engine, or what?
