CONTAINING HYMNS APPROVED AND SET
EDITED AND ARRANGED WITH MUSIC BY THE
Rev. CHARLES L. HUTCHINS, D.D.
The Parish Choir
CANON 25 OF TITLE I OF THE DIGEST
OF CHURCH MUSIC
§ 1. The Hymns which are set forth by anthority, and Anthems in the words of Holy Scripture, are allowed to be sung in all Congregations of this Church before and after Morning and Evening Prayer, and also before and after Sermons, at the discretion of the Minister, whose duty it shall be, by standing directions, or from time to time, to appoint such authorized Hymns or Anthems as are to be sung.
§ 2. It shall be the duty of every Minister of this Church, with such assistance as he may see fit to employ from persons skilled in music, to give order concerning the tunes to be sung at any time in his church; and especially, it shall be his duty to suppress all light and unseemly music, and all indecency and irreverence in the performance, by which vain and ungodly persons profane the service of the sanctuary.
The hymns in this book, with the exception of a few for use on occasions when, in the judgment of the officiating clergyman, no authorization is required, have, together with the Pointing OF THE CANTICLES, been set forth and authorized by the General Convention, for use in this Church.
This revised edition of the Church Hymnal has as its much prized imprimatur the request for its publication by many who have used previous editions; and in continuing such use desire to have also hymns more recently approved by the Church. The revision then consists mainly in the omission of some hymns and tunes which were rarely if ever used, and the inclusion of other hymns approved by the Convention of 1916, together with a few for special occasions and services. By the action of the Convention of 1919 this Hymnal has the same official standing as any other. It is hoped that it may be helpful in what should be the aim of every Hymnal, viz., the promotion of congregational singing, and the hearty worship of the Lord's House.
The arrangement of hymns which has been in use in our Hymnals for the past twenty-five years an arrangement adopted in the admirable Hymnal of the Canadian Church as well as in the best English Hymnals, — is retained in this book, as giving the freest use of many of the most desirable and favourite hymns.
In sending out his final book, the editor is reminded that it is published on the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of his first Church Hymnal; and while returning thanks for the many helpful suggestions he has received in the preparation of this book, he would also express deep appreciation of the kindness of those who in the use of his Hymnals have kindly pardoned their many defects.
