THE

PREFACE.

Hs'H 0' the reasons which induced the Editor to make this collection will be obvious to mo/i of those for whose accommodation it is intended,-yet in order to prevent any mistake or misconstruction that might possibly arise, it was thought proper to give a brief account of its intention and design. What has given the first occasion for its appearance is, the improvement in Psalmody in the church of St. Mary, which seems no less acceptable to, than generally acknowledged by those who attend that church. In consequence of tlu.i attempt to improve the Psalmody, the Singers found it necessary to call' to their aid various Psalms and Hymns, of different metres and tunes from those which had usually been sung before; with no design to exclude the Common Version

of Psalms used in the Church of England,

but

( iv )

but only to enlarge their sphere, and enrich the Singing with greater variety. Whenever such deviationfrom the Common Version was made, the congregation of course have been at a loss for the words, and thus tho' the tune might be known before, or become familiar by use, they have been hindr ed from joining with, and enjoying so fully as they might otherwise have done, that delightful part of divine worship. In order therefore to remove this inconvenience, arid to comply with' the wisnes which many have expressed, this little Collection taken chiefly from the Lock-Hymn Tunes, and from the Psalms and Hymns of Dr. Watts, is refpetlfully submitted and recommended to the*congregation usually attending at St. Marys,
