PSALMS AND HYMNS,
THE USE OF THE CHURCH OF ST. MARGARET,
THE REV. H. H. MILMAN, M.A.
MINISTER OF ST. MARGARET'S, AND PREBENDARY
OF ST. PETER'S, WESTMINSTER.
TO WHICH IS ADDED
MR. SALE'S CONCISE SYSTEM OF CHANTING.
J. B. NICHOLS AND SON, 25, PARLIAMENT-STREET.
This Selection of Psalms and Hymns is intended for parochial use in the Church of St. Margaret, Westminster. The practice of singing only two verses of the Psalms between the Prayers and the Communion service, has been for some time established in this Church; and as the chaunting introduced into the Service adds in some degree to its length, it has not been thought expedient to alter this arrangement. Some of the Hymns, it has been found impracticable, without destroying their unity and character, to curtail or to compress; they have therefore been left in their original form. In one or two instances they have been retained, as belonging to Mr. Sale's volume of music, rather than from the expectation that they can be frequently introduced with advantage into the Service of the Church.
