Wedderburn, James. A Scotch psalmodist; born at Dundee, about 1495; died in France, about 1553. With his brother Robert, he edited: ‘Ane Compendious Buike of Godly and Spirituall Sangs, Collectit Out of Sundrie Partes of the Scripture, wyth Sundrie of Uther Ballates Changed Out of Prophane Sangs, for Avoyding of Sinne and Harlotrie’ (about 1548).
