DAY SCHOOL HYMN BOOK
(NEW AND ENLARGED EDITION)
PRICE THree shilLINGS AND SIXPENCE.
LONDON & NEW YORK
NOVELLO, EWER AND CO.
IN presenting to the public this enlarged edition of "The Day School Hymn Book" it is earnestly hoped that it will enjoy a still wider sphere of usefulness than its predecessor, and that the work will be found not altogether unworthy, in spite of its many shortcomings, of the high aim which has inspired its production—namely, to provide a Hymn Book for school use which should combine throughout an elevated tone of thought and feeling, both in the words and music, with sufficient simplicity of ideas to make it acceptable to the young people for whom it is especially intended. If it should succeed in securing their interest and a place in their affection it will have amply fulfilled its mission.
A novel feature of the book is the introduction of French and German Hymns, which it is hoped will be of as much interest and value as Latin Hymns, which have generally formed a part of Hymn Books compiled for the great Public Schools, and a few of which are also included in this collection.
There are many acknowledgments to be made of the kindness of authors, composers, and holders of copyright in granting permission for their hymns and tunes to be used, in addition to those already recorded in the first edition of this work; and, first and foremost, most grateful thanks are due to Sir JOHN STAINER for his invaluable help and the unfailing interest he has shown throughout the preparation of the book. He has also not only generously given permission for the very fine tune by the late Rev. J. B. Dykes, which has hitherto been in his possession in manuscript, to be here published for the first time (No. 134), but has given a similar permission for one of his own composition (No. 28), and has written as many as six new tunes expressly for this work: Nos. 51, 55, 157, 158, 160, 161.
