Excerpt from Temple Melodies: A Collection of About Two Hundred Popular Tunes, Adapted to Nearly Five Hundred Favorite Hymns, Selected With Special Reference to Public, Social, and Private Worship
If we seek for the cause of these abuses, we shall find it, in no small measure, in the habitual silence of those who compose our congregations during the exercise of singing, This places those who should be worshipers, in the attitude of mere listeners. If the music happen to strike their fancy, they express admiration; if it displease them, they find fault. The praise of God is thus placed on a level, and is constantly compared with the exhibitions of the concert-room. If the choir sing exquisitely, they are praised; if only tolerably, they are blamed. Whichever way it may be, the inﬂuence exerted is bad.
