Excerpt from Christmas Carols and Hymns for School and Choir
Great care has been exercised to include only music that is worthy of study. It is believed that the superior excellence of the selections will appeal to competent choir leaders, who will find ample material in the book for many Christmas pro grams.
The book is intended also for use in schools. Many of the Carols may be sung in unison, especially by children, with excellent effect. With few exceptions, the music will be found equally suitable for high schools and choirs.
The metronome marks have been inserted to indicate the general tempo and not to fix the absolute speed at which the pieces are to be taken. In many of the selections, various modifications of tempo, rhythm, and accent are demanded by the character of the text or the music, and a rigid adherence to the metronome mark is often most unfortunate. However, the most important duty of the conductor is to know and indicate the proper tempo, and the metronome marks may assist the inexperienced conductor in this most important matter.
