Excerpt from Choral Echoes: From the Church of God in All Ages, a Collection of Hymns and Tunes Adapted to All Occasions of Social Worship For several years past, the compiler has felt a very strong desire to present to the Christian public such a collection of hymns and tunes as should be, in his judgment, entirely adapted to the wants of the church, in her social gatherings. This desire has come to partake of the nature of a conviction of duty, by his own reflections upon the need of such a work, and by the repeated solicitation of friends that he would undertake it. The book hereby presented is the result of much care and attention bestowed during many months. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
