It contains one hundred and ninety-two pages, forty of which are devoted to elementary principles and practical sparkling exercises for teaching purposes, a splendid Glee and Chorus Department, and an excellent selection of Hymns, Tunes and Anthems, for use in church service. Also several choruses taken from the works of the Old Masters, which greatly add to the merits of the book." (from the Preface). Bookseller Inventory # D83113
