The Latin Hymns in the Wesleyan Hymn Book: Studies in Hymnology

£29.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

In the Hymn Book published by John Wesley in 1779, which, with a few hymns subsequently added, continued in common use among "the people called Methodists" til 1830, there are, as might be expected, no hymns from the Latin. One after another, and then in clusters, writers such as Bishop Mant, Isaac Williams, Newman, Caswall and Sir Henry Baker gave new life and forms to hymns which, outside the Roman Communion, had been forgotten; The Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational churches received the best of them into their hymn books to the enrichment of their devotional life and public worship.

Blue cloth covers with gold text and borders to front and spine. Superficial marks and scratches. Spine is slightly faded and has minor shelf damage. Lightly bumped. Foxing to end papers and pastedowns, front hinge is split. Handwritten name on front end paper. Text block is tanned with occasional minor foxing. Bottom of pages unequally cut. Text on each page is contained within a red border. Text block is annotated in pencil and red pencil.
