Excerpt from Laudes Domini: A Selection of Spiritual Songs, Ancient Modern, for Use in the Prayer-Meeting

Recognizing these obligations, the editors of the new manual OF praise have endeavored to bring together a body of religious poetry and music which shall answer the growing needs of the church. In the search for fresh material, however, the editors have not forgotten the claims of that noble repository of song from which the church has drawn such an abundance of spiritual nurture in the past. They have aimed to gratify the reasonable demands of both the conservative and the liberal tem perament, seeking to meet what they conceive to be the needs of the future as well as of the present.

Many will regret the absence of certain familiar friends among both hymns and tunes. This is unavoidable. Certain old tunes have been rejected on account of triviality or dulness; they must give way to more worthy successors. Hymns glar ingly faulty in technical details, or else prosaic, over-dogmatic, or unsuited to the purpose for which a hymn as distinct from an individual lyric exists, have been cast aside. The editors believe that nothing of indispensable value has been omitted, and that in any case the loss has been more than made good.
