It is an undisputed fact that Sunday School workers to-day are seeking for a broader and more varied style of music. Not that some of the old songs are lacking in beauty or character; but, music in general is developing into a freer and higher character, and Sunday School songs must be borne along in the same channel.
In our first Sunday School book, “Uplifted Voices,” this broader and freer style was attempted, and the phenomenal sales convinced us that this book, “World - Wide Hosannas, should be compiled along similar lines.
We have taken the utmost care to admit to this book, hymns of only the highest literary character, together with tunes of equal merit, and thoroughly in harmony with the words.
A careful examination is most earnestly solicited ; and with the hope that “World - Wide Hosannas » may be a source of great usefulness, we dedicate it to the noble work of Sunday Schools and other fields of Christian activity.
The great number of familiar hymns and standard church hymns in this work, will make it highly useful where only one book must be used for both Sunday School and other devotional services.
Another interesting feature is several anthems which, although not too difficult for the average school, can, with a little drilling, be made wonderfully effective. Where “Boys parts” are marked, the entire school can sing in unison if too few boys are present.
The departments for Christmas, Easter, Children's Day, etc., abound with bright, stirring carols, choruses, etc. Choristers are urgently requested to use the smaller hymns, usually called “fillers, some of them are the choicest gems of this work.
We present it, not claiming it as superior to all other books, but believing it is not surpassed by any others.
