The history of hymn singing from the Early Church through the Lutheran Chorale, Psalmody, English and American Hymnody is carefully traced in this superb edition. First published in 1963, this 5th edition retains the basic format of the original publication, while incorporating a complete overhaul of the material. Hymnody and hymnology are vast and ever-growing fields, with new styles, repertory, usage, and research coming to the fore. The present revision of this historic textbook attempts to bring the story up to date.
