N issuing the Harmonized Edition of the “ Children's

Hymnal,” the Committee desire to state that a considerable number of the hymns have been taken from the “ Scottish Hymnal,"-as it is important that children, while learning

hymns suited to their youth, should also become familiar with the words and music of those which will be most serviceable in after-life. In all these the adaptation of tunes is the same as in the edition of that work with accompanying music. Such other hymns as were found suitable in metre and sentiment have been adapted to tunes from the “ Church of Scotland Psalm and Hymn Tune Book ;" while for the remaining hymns the best available music has been chosen. All the tunes from the “ Church of Scotland Psalm and Hymn Tune Book” are reprinted as they stand there ; while the harmonies of those from other sources have undergone a thorough revision by Professor Monk, who has in most cases supplied altogether new harmonies. In a few instances the melodies have been slightly modified since the publication of the Single Voice Edition of the “ Children's Hymnal ;" in future issues the two editions will in this respect be made to correspond. An additional tune has been given to No. 86.

The Committee would take this opportunity of acknowledging their special obligation to Professor Monk for his services in connection with the whole of their publications, and more particularly for

the harmonies supplied to the present work; as also to the gentleme. whose tunes, granted for the “ Church of Scotland Psalm and Hymn Tune Book” and acknowledged in it, are reprinted here. For original pieces in this selection, they tender their thanks to Mr. James S. Geikie, for No. 37; Mr. G. H. Gregory, Mus. Bac., for Nos. 8, 30, 91; Messrs. Novello, Ewer, and Co., for Nos. 31, 78, 81, 87, and the words of No. 8; and very specially to Signor Alberto Randegger, for sanctioning and revising the four-part arrangement of two of these, Nos. 31 and 78.

The Committee are confident that this Edition will add greatly to the usefulness of this Collection of Children's Hymns, the popularity of which has been already proved by its wide circulation.
