Summary

"Few things can be more pleasing to the Lord than a congregation, with one heart and voice, praising his holy name.... From these remarks we surely must be sensible of the necessity of confining ourselves to simple tunes, as the fugue tunes have an unavoidable tendency to confine to a few this part of Divine worship, which belongs to the whole. And those, we think, have made few remarks on public worship, who have not observed, on the one hand, how it deadens devotion, and only at the best raises an admiration of the singers and not of Christ."
