  • Preface : "The song of praise is an act of devotion so becoming, delightful, and excellent that we find it coeval with the sense of Deity ... almost universally received into the solemnities of public worship .... Divine song is the language of nature .... Music suitably expresses the sentiments of devotion .... Joy is the natural effect of praise; and song the proper accompaniment of joy .... It hath lofty strains for the sublimity of admiration, and plaintive accents, which become the tear of thanksgiving and triumph .... If such is the happy tendency of well regulated song in the house of God, it must be highly important to have our church music accompany with its proper effect. This can be accomplished only in two ways; by having good music; and by having it well performed"--t.p. verso
  • Advertisement : "... great care has been taken to select such music only as will be found on trial to be of permanent use in the services of the church .... In style they are (generally) simple, dignified and pathetic .... All light and flimsy airs...have been cautiously excluded .... The exertions are duly estimated, and have a claim to the thanks of the community"--p. [3]
  • Recommendation : "We the subscribers have perused "The Hallowell collection of sacred music", and most cheerfully recommend it as a volume contaning a rich variety of excellent tunes, judiciously selected and arranged; well calculated to improve the musical taste of our country and aid the devotional exercises of our churches. [signed] John Merrick, Pres't [and] Prentiss Mellen, V. Pres't of the Handel Society of Maine. Hallowell, October 8th, 1817"--p. [3]
