Excerpt from Wreath of Praise: A Collection of Choice Original Hymns and Tunes Suitable for Sunday-Schools, Bible Classes and the Home Circle
A few suggestions of a practical nature may not be considered out of place at this point. Our aim, in com piling this little volume, has been to provide a collection of songs for the Sunday School that shall be both enter taining and instructive to unite simplicity with strength in such a manner as will emphasize the lessons of the hymns, and render the singing exercises of the Sunday School both pleasant and profitable.
The music does not require any very skillful teaching in order to insure its success - yet we claim that the very best talent at the command of the church should be placed at the head of the Sunday School music. No general directions can be given that will meet the varied circumstances of the different schools, and very much must be left to the judgment and good taste of the chorister, who should use the talent at his command to the best possible advantage.
The music, as a rule, should be taken up in a rather quick, sprightly movement, and a great variety may be produced by having the hymn sung as a Solo, Quartette or Semi-chorus, when they have Refrains or Choruses, all Joining in the Refrain. We would prefer, however, to have the hymn well sung by the whole school rather than indifferently rendered by a few voices.
A very pleasing ending may be produced by repeating the Chorus after the last verse of the hymn very soft/y, or after each verse if the time will admit of it. Full harmony is given to nearly every piece, yet no one need to feel compelled to use it simply because it is there neither should a tune be discarded on account of its being marked as a Solo or Duet when it cannot be thus used have it sung by the whole school. Special attention has been given to selections suitable for Sunday School Concerts and Anniversaries, and we believe that herein will be found an abundant supply for special occasions to last any school at least two years.
