A New Metrical Psalter

By Christopher L. Webber

This book is in very good condition. There is little to no wear on the cover and spine the corners have not been bumped. The pages are crisp, white and clean of any markings. "The increasing use of the Psalter in the liturgy makes it desirable that there be musical settings which can be easily used by any congregation. Anglican chant, plainsong, and the Gelineau method all require an attention to phrasing which is quite different from the set relationship between words and music of the usual hymn or secular song. The metrical method, on the other hand, fits the psalms to simple and, in most cases, familiar melodies. Most metrical psalms can be easily sung the first time they are presented...." - Author's Introduction from A New Metrical Psalter

The pages are yellowed and tanned, but free of any markings.This hymnal has stood the test of time extremely well. "As by the action of the General Convention (in setting forth a new collection of hymns), a new edition of the Church Hymnal was made necessary, so by the action of the same Convention in providing for an authorized pointing of the Canticles, etc., a new edition of the Chant Book seems to be required, or at least desired by many who have requested the editor of the Church Hymnal to prepare it. The same principal which guided the editor in the preparation of the Hymnal, viz., to provide for the needs of the average choir and congregation, has guided him in his work on this Chant and Service Book; and he sincerely hopes that it may be found useful wherever it is adopted. Concord, Massachusetts, Sept., A.D. 1894..." Preface from The Chant And Service Book

The Story Of One Hundred Symphonic Favorites

By Paul Grabbe

This book is in good condition. The cover is worn, especially on the edges. The previous owners name is marked and stamped on the inside front cover. A grand little reference work. Pocket-sized but dense, this book tackles one hundred well-known symphonic works, ranging from those with clear stories like 'Carnival of the Animals', to more typical classical pieces. These kind of works just don't exist anymore! Articulately written, exploring both the context and meaning of the work, but without being either academic or needlessly commercial. Just someone with a genuine interest in classical greats writing simple listening guides for the regular viewer. Those were the days.
