At a meeting of ministers, sunday school teachers, and the friends of sunday
schools, held at Hull, in the autumn of 1841, much was said on the present state
of congregational psalmody, and on the importance of introducing some simple
method to the churches, which should enable all to sing, with ease and with
propriety, the praises of God as their hearts shall bid them. The editor of this little
volume was there commissioned, and, in some degree, pledged, to give his
attention to this ...

There are oftentimes as fine voices, persons with as much musical taste and
culture, in the congregation as in the choir. Not all singers are invited to join the
choir, or, if invited, choose to accept the invitation. Some prefer to worship below
with the family to which they belong. And we can not complain of this. But we
want the help of their voices in this part of divine worship. Some pains must,
indeed, be taken to instruct the congregation in sacred music. There must be
singing schools ...

we cannot complain of this. But we want the help of their voices in this part of

When I hear somebody sing a song and they say “me chew" instead of “meet you,
” that's the first thing I Ilotl Ce. Virtually all persons interviewed agreed that the
real purpose of singing schools was to improve the quality of congregational
singing. Garnet Cassaday observed that “churches held singing schools so that
members of the congregation could learn the new songs. They'd pick out all the
good songs,” he continued, “and teach them to people.” Hazel Bryson claimed
that an ...

Protestant churches. Even the church music was minimal and reduced to the
singing of a few wellknown hymns. Because organs or pianos would have been
an inconceivable luxury then, most singing was done in a callandresponse
manner. A song leader would sing a line of the hymn and the congregation would
echo it. The result was that the singing in the churches, in time, diminished to the
singing of a few familiar hymns. Some music schools did open up in Boston
during colonial ...

However, the survival of one form of congregational singing is remarkable.
Shape-note singing is believed to have its origins in eighteenth-century New
England with the creation of singing schools intended to improve congregational
singing in the churches. Itinerant teachers would set up these schools on a
subscription basis to teach the principles of singing. While the songs were sacred
, the atmosphere of the singing school was more often secular. Although
ostensibly religious in ...

The work of John Curwen and Sarah Glover fostered interest in singing in
schools and churches. Their prime concern was the improvement of sight-singing
to enable church services to benefit. Such a profound effect did Curwen's tonic
sol-fa scheme have on music education that great festivals of sight-singing took
place in London's Crystal Palace and similar venues throughout the country often
with 3,000 singers and audiences of some 30,000. Choral performances required
