Excerpt from The Congregational Tune-Book: Being a Collection of Popular and Approved Tunes, Mostly From the National Psalmist, Suitable for Congregational Use
This book has been compiled in compliance with numerous requests from different sections of the country, and to supply the wants of those Societies where Congrega tional Singing has been introduced. The Selection, as is indicated in the Title, is chieﬂy from the national psalmist, and the harmony and arrangement are the same in both books, so that while the larger book is used by the choir, the smaller may be used by the congregation generally. While some few tunes have been inserted because they are well known, and in general use, it will be found that the majority are truly congregational in their character and style.
For remarks upon the relative importance of, and position due to Congre gational and Choir singing, together with hints as to the best manner to introduce and sustain Congregational Singing, the reader is referred to the Preface of the national psalmist, a single sentence of which we may be permitted to insert here. While, therefore, we are decidedly friendly to congregational singing, we are equally so to choir singing; they are both legitimate forms of musical truth.
