The following Collection of “WORDS OF ANTHEMS" is mainly founded on that issued some years ago under the joint Editorship of the Rev. W. Rayson, M.A., Sir John STAINER, M.A., Mus. Doc., and the Rev. J. TROUTBECK, D.D.
Not only, however, has it been made more comprehensive, but it has been almost entirely re-arranged on a plan commending itself to many distinguished and experienced Church Musicians, from whom also many valuable hints and much kind help have been received.
In grateful recognition of such help, the Compiler desires especially to mention the names of W. A. Barrett, Mus. Bac., Vicar Choral of St. Paul's Cathedral ; C. S. Jekyll, Organist and Composer to Her Majesty's Chapels Royal ; the Rev. S. Flood Jones, M.A., Precentor of Westminster Abbey ; C. Harford Lloyd, M.A., Mus. Bac., Organist of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford ; A. H. Mann, Mus. Doc., Organist of King's College, Cambridge; the Rev. Sir F. A. Gore Ouseley, Bart., M.A., Mus. Doc., Professor of Music in the University of Oxford ; J. V. Roberts, Mus. Doc., organist of Magdalen College, Oxford ; the Rev. W. Russell, M.A., Mus. Bac., Succentor of St. Paul's Cathedral; Sir John Stainer, M.A., Mus. Doc. ; Sir Robert P. Stewart, Mus. Doc., Professor of Music in Trinity College, Dublin; and the Rev. J. Troutbeck, D.D., Chaplain to the Queen and Minor Canon of Westminster Abbey.
Thanks are due also to C. Villiers Stanford, M.A., Mus. Doc., Professor of Music in the University of Cambridge, for
