The Ulster Tune Book: A Selection of Tunes in full vocal score, specially adapted for use in Presbyterian churches - published April 1868


From the Preface - "...it is to be regretted that not a few tunes in general use are far from meriting the position they occupy in public esteem. Such compositions are light and irreverent, abounding in trills and repeats, being for the most part mere perversions of secular airs and totally unsuited both for the Church and for the holy words with which they are associated...". Compiled and edited by Mr William Moss, Precentor of Fisherwick Place Church, Belfast.
