Excerpt from The Temple Church Choral Service Book: Containing the Responses in Their Monotone, Ferial, and Festival Forms; Appropriate Chants to the Daily Psalms; Metrical Psalms and Hymns With Their Tunes; And Prefaces and Indexes to Each Division
The more continuous portio... ns of the Services called for a greater amount of thought; and, on account of their greater length, their musi cal treatment has almost of necessity assumed something of the form of a setting; but in no case has the shape thus accidentally received been allowed to interfere with or disturb the even progress and ¿ow of the modest and distinct song. In fact, the harmony is frequently suspended for a moment while the reciting note G is sounded afresh by itself, to preserve or restore accuracy of intonation.
