Excerpt from The Service of Song: A Treatise on Singing in Private Devotion, in the Family and in the School, and in the Worshiping Congregation

The Author Of this unpretending volume has long looked in sadness upon the indifference manifested by many in the service Of song. Thousands who have the ability to sing maintain a careless silence in the church; and Of those who sing, many are evidently destitute, to a very great extent, of the spirit of worship. Even ministers are but too frequently seen burying their own talent for song, while they allow habitual remissness in Others without uttering a word Of instruction, encouragement or warning. Observation of this inattention to a matter of prime importance convinced the writer, several years ago, that something should be done to bring up the practice of the Church to the Scriptural rule.

Supposing that there were already extant books and tracts on the subject of Praise in Song, we searched many private libraries, but could find no works of the kind. Special inquiry was then made at sundry book-stores and publishing houses, but with little success. From Columbia and Charles ton, S. C., Nashville, Tenn., and zoo Mulberry street, New York, and other cities, nothing could be Obtained but a few books on Psalm-singing, Hymnology, and Musical history.
