Excerpt from Hymns Selected From Various Authors: With a Key of Musical Expression
So strong, however, was the predilection of the community for Watts entire, that Dr. Worcester was induced to edit the work which has since been extensively known as Watts' and Select Hymns. To this work a liberal patronage has been afforded. It has been introduced into very many of our churches, and holds a high place in public estimation. Spu rions editions of it having lately appeared, and the matenals for an improved selection of hymns having greatly increased, a new edition has been strongly urged by many gentlemen, whose judgment is entitled to res ctful consideration.
