Rogers was organist at Christ Church, Dublin in his early career, an employment cutailed by the outbreak of the Irish rebellion, 1641. Except for a short interlude at Eton in the early years of the restauration, Rogers spent most of the rest of his life in Oxford (Magdalen). He was a quintessential Oxfordian of the seventeenth century: informant to Anthony a Wood, composer of music played at the dedication ceremonies of the Sheldonian Theatre, and composer of the Hymnus Eucharisticus, sung on May Morning from Magdalen Tower (probably from the 1670s, although the ritual was not formalised until about 1844).

Lyrics: Psalm 134

Behold, now praise the Lord: all ye servants of the Lord,
Ye that by night stand in the house of the Lord: even in the courts of the house of our God.
Lift up your hands in the sanctuary: and praise the Lord.
The Lord that made heaven and earth: give thee blessing out of Sion.

Benjamin Rogers
(1614 - 1698)
