The Collection of Anthems is unusually large. It was felt that if these were introduced at all, they should be numerous enough for due variety, as well as adapted to all degrees of musical culture. As a rule, the Anthems are sufficiently simple for any ordinary congregation where a reasonable amount of practice in Psalmody can be secured. For some few of them a trained choir is undoubtedly necessary; but there is room for these also in the service of the Church; and their employment, not only in Public Worship, but in mission services and in social meetings of churches and congregations, may often prove a means of spiritual help. But, in the selection of the Anthems, the main object has been kept steadily in view, of making ample provision for strictly congregational use.

To facilitate reference, the Anthems are arranged under different sections, providing for both ordinary and occasional services. Some favourite Hymns, already included in the other part of the book, have also been set as Anthems.

It must be added, as in the case of the Tunes, that the omission of some well-known Anthems may be noted with regret. This regret is fully shared by the Compilers, who have been unable to obtain the use of these copyright compositions. It is hoped, however, that what is found in the book will inore than compensate for what may be missed.

Be Thy wort with power fraught
Before Jehovah's awful throne...
Begin, my tongue, some heavenly theme
Begin the day with God...
Begone, unbelief ...
Behold a Stranger at the door...
Behold the throne of grace
Behold us, Lord, a little space
Behold what wondrous grace
Beloved, let us love
Beneath the cross of Jesus
Beyond, beyond that boundless sea
Birds have their quiet nest
Blest are the pure in heart
Biest be the tie that binds
Blow ye the trumpex, blow
Bread of the wrd, in mercy broken
