I am well presuaded that the work will not meet the approbation of all, inasmuch as it does not contain certain tunes which have been bandied about from Maine to Georgia for the last twenty years...-this trash has had its day and it is time to retrace our steps until we arrive at the true sublime of Psalmody ... the collections of chants, doxologies, &c. will be found much improved ...."-- p.

It is much to be wished that vocal music were more generally taught in our schools, as it is among the Germans ... regret[ful] that such numbers among us should remain unacquainted with so easy a thing as the Gamut ... the source of such refined pleasure .... An elegant and rational amusement will then be presented for the youth of both sexes. They will imperceptibly acquire habits of regularly attending public worship...Then shall we `Sing unto the Lord a new song' ; then shall we `Sing unto him with understanding'"--p. [ii]
