"The numerous complaints made against musical publications, on account of the frequent alterations which are made in old and approved pieces of Church Music, is the prime cause of this collection being presented to the public. All the ancient pieces, will be found in their original form, or nearly so, in this work...A considerable number of new pieces have been inserted, the merits of which cannot be known until after trial; and although these may not be strictly scientific, in every particular, yet it is believed they will not be found to deviate essentially." - Advertisement.
