THE selections in this book are mainly from

“In Excelsis ” (which is already in use in a large number of representative churches),

with the addition of many beautiful Christmas and Easter carols and hymns for young children. It is based upon the conviction that the children and young people of the church can and should be taught to sing the noblest compositions which are used in the great congregation, and that substantially the same hymns and tunes should be employed in all the services of the church. Many of the melodies are exceedingly simple, and they are generally well within the compass of children's voices. The tunes are all from the best composers.
