AIKIN, JESSE B. The Christian Minstrel: A New System of Musical Notation; With a Collection of Psalm Tunes, Anthems, and Chants, Selected from the Most Popular Works in Europe in America. Designed for the Use of Churches, Singing-Schools, and Societies. By J. B. Aikin. Twentieth Edition. Philadelphia, T. K. Collins, Jr., ; E. C. & J. Biddle; T. K. & P. G. Collins. Lancaster, Judd & Murray. New York, H. Long. Boston, Fetridge & Co.. Cincinnati, D. Anderson. Columbus, S. N. Whiting & Huntington. Wheeling, Va., John Fisher. 1851. Oblong 9 x 5 inches. $175.00

Aikin's Christian Minstrel (Phila, 1846) was the second but first successful attempt to substitute 7 shapes for the traditional 4 shape fasola hymnals. It "endured for decades and went into as many as 171 editions. Aikin's choice of simple elementary forms for his three additional note-heads has been shown to be fortunate by the fact that his shapes are used today by all the seven-shape rural song-book publishers in the South and have been the standard notation in that territory for over fifty years. ...In Aikin's Preface he stated clearly his hopes that his book would supplant the `trashy publications' which had up to that time, `supplied the churches, especially of the South and West...' He also hoped that his new notation would swell the numbers of those who could read music easily. He explained that he had reduced the varieties of musical measure to three, two-two, three-two, and six-four time; that he had excluded the minor scale from consideration in his rudiments as an unnatural, impractical, confusing, and really non-existent phase of music; that he had but one sort of clef for all four parts, one that has G in the middle (third line) of the staff; and that he had expressed the key of the tune by words and not by symbols."--Jackson: White Spirituals in the Southern Uplands, p.320-21.

COWPER, WILLIAM. The Task. A Poem. In Six Books. By William Cowper, of the Inner Temple, Esq. Philadelphia, Published by B. & T. Kite. T. & G. Palmer, printers. 1809. Small volume, 6.9 x 11.4 x 1.7cm. $45.00 William Cowper, 1731-1800, English poet. "Physically and emotionally unfit for the professional life, he was admitted to the bar but never practiced. After a battle with insanity, Cowper retired to the country, taking refuge with the family of Mrs. Mary Unwin, whose life-long devotion to him he celebrates in "To Mary." Most of his country life was spent at Olney, where he met John Newton, the ardent evangelical preacher. He contributed to Newton's Olney Hymns (1779)... including the two commencing "Oh for a closer walk with God" and "God moves in a mysterious way." His hymns, while expressing the hope of the new humanitarian religious revival, often gave way to religious despair and self-distrust. After Newton left Olney, Cowper, having recovered from another period of insanity, turned to writing about simple homely subjects, producing his famous long poem, The Task (1785). Its descriptions of the sights and sounds of country life foreshadowed 19th-century romanticism. Cowper's sweet-tempered, playful moods found a way into many of his poems, the most notable being "The Diverting History of John Gilpin." He also made a relatively unsuccessful translation of Homer (1791). After the death of Mrs. Unwin in 1796, his old malady returned, and he wrote little except the anguished poem, "The Castaway." His letters are considered among the most brilliant in English literature."--"Cowper, William." The Columbia Encyclopedia, 6th ed.. 2015. Encyclopedia.com. 3 Nov. 2015 .

These and countless individual thinkers, in and out of the Orthodox ranks, are fusing their thought, scholarship, and piety into one great fraternity, which will create and sustain a Church of broad sympathies, broad humanities, broad hopes, and a broad theology,--a Church, moreover which will accord with, and serve the American ideas of liberty and equality, as no old-world ecclesiastcism or theology can do. This humble volume, for the most part a mere compilation, has been prepared with the hope of increasing the true church sentiment in the hearts of the American people... The work of Protestantism will never be fully accomplished until the prayers and ordinances of the Church have been rescued from the dungeons of medieval scholasticism, and have become the inspiration of all the free

The Musical Miscellany, Comprising the Music Published in the Musical Magazine, HASTINGS, THOMAS
4 HASTINGS, THOMAS The Musical Miscellany, Comprising the Music Published in the Musical Magazine
Thomas Hastings' The Musical Miscellany, NY, 1836 1836 Hardback--paper covered good Octavo in 4's 14.4 x 23.3cm. New York 
Thomas Hastings(1784-1872) well known American composer of sacred music. "About two hundred of his hymns are in current use, and he left in manuscript about four hundred more. His music, with that of Lowell Mason, did important service in the Church, and marks in America the transition period between the crude and the more cultured periods of psalmody."--Thomas S. Hastings in New Schaff-Herzog Ency. Rel. Knowl., V:167. In 1832 by the call of a committee from 12 churches he moved from Utica, NY to NY City where he was urged to put into practice in that city the theories for better church music which he had been promulgating. And this he did for the next 40 years. The Musical Magazine (1836-1837) was one of the fruits of that labor. "Thomas worked diligently to promote the magazine... Unfortunately, the financial backing for this magazine was not sufficient to allow it to exist for more than two years and by April 1837 the final issue had come to press. Interestingly, this failed journalistic venture spawned yet another publication The Musical Miscellany, Comprising the Music Published in the Musical Magazine (1836). As the title indicates, the musical examples incorporated into the Musical Magazine were gathered together in a separate publication... There are forty-two items in the Miscellany, and many are by Hastings, whose compositions vary from a round (Let us oft unite in song) or a hymn (Ceylon) to an anthem (Funeral Anthem)."--Hermine Weigel Williams: Thomas Hastings: An Introduction to His Life and Music, p. 98, text & footnote. Bound in original vine pattern embossed cloth, lacking bottom 11cm and top 3cm of spine strip (8.5cm remaining), early hand lettered title label on spine, worn through cloth at corners at places along edges, light to medium foxing, heavier foxing on endpapers, historical society stamp and their withdrawn stamp on front paste-down endpaper, previous owner's name stamped in top outer corner of title page, number in red ink in top outer corner of front free endpaper, top to bottom tear in fist page of music repaired with archival rag paper.

HUNTER, WILLIAM and SAMUEL WAKEFIELD. The Minstrel of Zion: A Book of Religious Songs, Accompanied with Appropriate Music, Chiefly Original. Philadelphia, Sorin & Ball, Stereotyped by L. Johnson and Co., 1845 (c1845 Printed by T. K. & P. G. Collins) 12mo in 6's, 9.5 x 15.2cm. $150.00

William Hunter (1811-1877), Methodist Episcopal pastor, presiding elder, editor, college prof., and gospel song writer. He was born in Ireland, emigrated with family in 1817; admitted to the Pittsburgh Conference 1833; editor of the Pittsburgh Conf. Journal and Pittsburgh Christian Advocate; filled pastorates in the Pittsburgh, West Virginia and East Ohio conferences, and was elected Professor of Hebrew and Biblical Literature in Alleghany College, where he remained for 15 years. Samuel Wakefield, admitted to the Pittsburgh Conference of the Methodist Ep. Church, 1834. "This work seeks not a place in the higher departments of poetry and music. It is rather designed as a contribution to the songs of plain Christian people, who make little pretensions to highly cultivated musical and poetical taste. The simple and pathetic have been more sought for than the lofty and sublime... Although this work contains a number of hymns and tunes adapted to the congregation, and especially to prayer-meetings, class-meetings and love-feasts, and to the `altar,' in seasons of revival, yet it is mainly intended for the family and social circle. Many of the compositions do not aspire to the character of hymns, but are rather `spiritual,' or religious songs... Frequent references are made throughout the book to hymns in the `Select Melodies,' suitable to be sung to particular tunes in this work. The two works will be found adapted to each other."--Wm. Hunter in the Preface. Rowe: Meth. Union Cat., #H7299. Stanislaw: Checklist Four-Shape Shape-Note Tunebooks, #109, "Rural and urban." We offer the First Edition of this small Methodist shape-note tunebook. Bound printed paper over boards, rebacked with modern brown acid-free paper with printed paper title label on spine, worn through paper at edges, library stamp, light foxing. Early owner inscription on front flyleaf from Dec. 12, 1845. Preface signed (i.e., printed) "W. H., Pittsburgh, 1845." Musical Introduction by Wakefield.

Collation: 1-186. Pagination: 216pp. Indexes. Music in 4 shapes, mostly in 2 part but a few in 4 part harmony. Hunter wrote the words for 88 of 183 hymns in this book. Wakefield composed 78 of the 157 tunes.

There are, indeed many, whose hopes are bounded by this present world, who endeavour to lull the voice of conscience, and are not disposed to lay to heart the great and momentous concerns of eternity. Such persons, not doubt, dislike Sacred Poetry, especially when it embodies Scriptural sentiment. The natural opposition of the human mind to the truth as it is in Jesus, will excite disgust against evangelical topics, in whatever dress they are presented; but we are not, on this account, to deprive others of the pleasure and benefit which the contemplation of the divine character is fitted to bestow; or to neglect a mode of raising the mind to God, which is sanctioned by the example of inspiration, while its advantages have been experienced by believers in every age..."--Preface.

He was especially devoted to the bettering of the musical services of the churches, and to that end paid attention to the training of church choirs. He was indefatigable also in the preparation of handbooks and manuals for use in churches, Sunday-schools and singing-classes."--New Schaff-Herzog Ency. Rel. Knowl., 7:226. "Mason was not a great composer. Many of his tunes were adaptations of melodies from H�ndel, Haydn, and Mozart, and from earlier church music, but they came to replace the `fugue tune' of the earlier nineteenth century and gained great popularity throughout the Untied States."--DAB, 12:372.

From Preface: "...The selection has been made chiefly from those songs, and other pieces, which have obtained a decided popularity. This, however, was not found to be a very easy matter; for of the great multitude of such pieces, but few are equally and entirely unobjectionable in their text and in their music. In many cases it has been found necessary to make alterations in the poetry, and in every instance, its character has been primarily regarded. By far the greater number of pieces in the present volume, are either now harmonized for the first time, or altogether newly arranged; and a few were composed expressly for this work...."

Asahel Nettleton (1783-1843) "a well-known Connecticut evangelist... He never settled as a pastor with any congregation, but preached in Western Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York; in Virginia 1827-28; and also in Great Britain in 1831. Nettleton's hymnological work centered in the compiling of his Village Hymns [1st ed. 1824], from which more hymns of the older American writers have passed into English collections than from any other source. He knew and could appreciate a good hymn, but it is doubtful if he ever did or ever could have written one."--F.M. Bird in Julian: Dict. of Hymnology, p.794.
