From the Preface:
- The publishers of this book were the first to suggest the importance of a union of the various publishers of character-notes upon one set of shapes. Up to the year 1876 each of these publishers had his own peculiar shapes representing the scale-names Doe, Ray, See. The most prominent characters were those invented by Aikin, Funk, and Walker. A union has been effected upon Aikin's shapes, and we have adopted them. This has necessitated, upon our part, an entire change in our various publications. Hence "Melodies of Praise" has been thoroughly revised. Some of the less valuable tunes and hymns have been omitted, and new ones have been inserted, and under the name "New Melodies of Praise this little book is sent out on its errand of love in the Sabbath Schools.
