The Editor of this work trusts that the following pages will be found gederally useful in the service of the church. His aim has been to furnish good music, rather than light, frivolous melody—to restore, as nearly as practicable, the old standard tunes and chants to their original harmonies, while, in the selection of the new, he has endeavored to avoid vulgarity, or straining after effect.

He flatters himself that the large number of chants will be found acceptable, for even where chanting is not practiced, hymns in metre, of four lines in each stanza, may be sung to almost all of the double chants, thus giving nearly one hundred new tunes if required.

He would recommend to those in favor of congregational singing, to use the same words to the same tunes, invariably, and in a short time the association between the words and the music will enable the congregation to sing most of the tunes.

It will be observed that the time marks are omitted throughout the whole work, as the space they usually occupy more than compensates for their logs. Marks of expression are also avoided—the character of the words sufficiently indicating the sentiment of the music to which they are attached.
