Also to BISHOP WALSHAM How, one of the Editors of Church Hymns, for his kindness in undertaking the work of inserting the Expression Marks, a work which the Editor cannot but think he has carried out with great discretion and taste; to LIONEL H. LEWIN, Esq., for much valuable aid ; and lastly to his friend J. W. ELLIOTT, Esq., for the use of his tunes and for the very valuable assistance he has rendered by his good counsel, his sound judgment, and his untiring energy in the more laborious department of manual work.

The Editor also begs to express his hearty acknowledgments of the cordial goodwill shown towards him by composers to whom he has made suggestions as to alterations of harmony, &c. Such suggestions have always been made with great diffidence, and only after careful consideration, and they have invariably been met in the frankest and most friendly spirit.

Adaptations from popular works are, as a rule, much to be deprecated, as presenting original compositions in a garbled form only. But exceptions may occasionally be made with advantage, and the Editor accepts without any very grave apprehension, the responsibility of such an arrangement, for instance, as “Come unto Me" (Hymn 351), the original melody, which it closely follows, being so linked with the feeling of the words, that separation would seem almost unwarrantable.

In the majority of cases where the words are set to an unison tune, a harmonised version is given as well ; but in some instances this has not been thought necessary, notably in the Children's Hymns, where a bright, taking melody has been the first consideration-a melody that children can learn easily and willingly, and which requires only a simple Organ, or, for school use, Harmonium accompaniment.

The marking of the divisions of the lines in the music is an important question, upon which no settled rules have ever yet been laid down. In the present work the following plan has been adopted :The Long Metres are distinguished by a single broad bar at the end of the first and third lines, and a double bar at the end of the second line and at the close ; and, the great aim being to guide the eye as far as possible, a similar principle has been acted upon in other metres, wherever it seemed likely to facilitate that object.

While acknowledging how greatly his work has been lightened by the earnest labour of previous workers in the same field, the Editor nevertheless trusts that this book may prove one more step towards the advancement of good and worthy music in the service of God.
