Excerpt from Hymnal: Amore Dei
Hymns, however, are not written for speech but for song. While the text has been studiously selected, the compiler gave her first care to the music, and especially to secure such blending of words with music, that vorce and verse might really be the two-fold expression of a single mood. Each stanza, each leading phrase, has been lovingly and critically studied in this regard.
The book is in two parts. In Part I. The largest place is given to the modern English school, particularly to the compositions of Barnby, Dykes, Calkin, Sulli van, etc. The hymns here have much of the tender, reverent, and noble simplicity, which characterizes the music. This section contains also a few Welsh airs, which have a quality peculiarly their own. Part II. Draws chieﬂy from Ameri can sources, and contains the most familiar and well-loved hymns now current in our churches.
