It will be seen that the object is to show comprehensively, without the necessity of spending further time and labor in searching elsewhere, what hymns and anthems are suitable for every Sunday or other occasion. In making the selection, the plan adopted has been, after perusal of the collect, epistle and gospel, together with the proper lessons for the day, to fix upon the particular subjects which it has been intended by the compilers of the prayer-book and the lectionary to bring to the attention of the Church, and to further this object by selecting such hymns and anthems as appear to reflect and emphasize the same or analogous subjects. I trust that an intelligent use of the book may, at the end of the days worship, produce an impression of that general consistency throughout the services which is undoubtedly helpful to the earnest and devout worshipper, but which is often disturbed by the introduction of hymns and anthems either having no connection with the occasion, or being sometimes at variance with it. Such further indications have been inserted as would appear to be useful. I shall be glad to receive any corrections and observations from those who use the book, in view of its improvement if a further edition should be called for. MALLINSON RANDALL.
