A swell is an essential beauty in singing ... the Bass [should] be sung grave and majestic, the Tenor steady and engaging, the Counter shrill and melodious, and the Treble soft and delicate ... the most important point in psalmody is a strict decorum with a heart deeply impressed with the great truths we utter with our voices, aiming at the glory of God and the edification of one another"--p. vi
