  • Preface : "It has long been matter of just and general complaint ... that Psalmody ... instead of producing ... the effect of a sublime and solemn act of praise to the Supreme Being, has in too many churches so degenerated, or is so little attended to, as to become contemptible and even ridiculous .... The truth is, that what we too generally hear is unworthy of the name of music .... If a tenth part of that laudable zeal which is displayed in the promotion of Bible, Missionary and Tract Societies could be drawn into another channel and exerted for the promotion of Psalmody, we should not so often be annoyed with, `such singing as adds neither ornament nor dignity to the Psalms and Hymns which are drawled out and bawled with that unmusical and unmeaning vehemence...'"--p [i]
  • Pref. [ctd.] : "If Psalmody be so agreeable to the dictates of nature, and so expressive of the strongest and most amiable feelings of the heart ; if among the Israelites and primitive christians it was cultivated with so much care ... if it be illustrated by the example of Christ and enforces by the precepts of his apostles, it cannot surely be necessary to urge every individual in a congregation to pay that attention to this part of the service which it so justly deserves .... To conduce in some measure to the accomplishment of these desireable objects, this work is presented to the public ... should it be instrumental in diffusing a better taste through the country ... the chief object of the Editor will be fully accomplished"--p. ii
  • "Remarks" : "The Editor would earnestly recommend that ... the Air or principal melody may be performed by the treble voices. In this arrangement ... there is no unmeaning jumble of sounds, for the acuteness of the treble voices renders the Air predominant .... The female voice has been in all ages the favorite of genius"--p. iii
  • "Errata" : with header of two lines (one narrow and one wide) of straight rule"-- p.[iii]
