In singing Psalms and Hymns, all slowness approaching to a drawl should be carefully avoided; and the Tunes should be sung, simply and distinctly, as they are written; all extemporaneous flourishes, slides, and grace-notes, as they are called, being not merely in bad taste, but wholly inadmissible in Congregational or Choral Singing.
