Excerpt from Songs of Promise: For Sunday Schools, Prayer, Praise, and Conference Meetings
The universal favor with which the beacon light was received has induced the editors and publisher: 0 issue songs OF promise, which is the result of the five years' labor and experience... since the former was published. Contributions from Christian Workers and Sunday-school composers from all parts of the country have been secured, over thirty of whom are represented. Besides these, many arrangements from Beethoven, Rossini, Bellini, Verdi, Schubert, Dr. Elvey, and other classical composers have been inserted.
It has been the aim of the editors to provide songs adapted to all grades of Sunday-schools, and to every variety of individual taste, from the simplest melody to music of considerable melodic and harmonic difficulty. Particular attention has been given to Easter music, and an unusual amount has been inserted. It is hoped that the Anthems will be found exceedingly useful for Easter festivals.
The editors have endeavored to secure the best of original hymns from a large number of contributors, upon a great variety of practical topics, as will be seen by examining the index OF subjects, to which we call particular attention. While the most of the hymns are new, a large number have been selected from the standard hymns of the day. Permission was given to select from alarge number of manuscript hymns left by the late Mrs. E. C. Ellsworth, among which were some of marked excellence.
