1,100 hymns are listed by subject in three different sections of this work. The first part provides information about the text, the name of the composer and the location of the hymn in various hymnals. The second part provides musical notation and the third section gives a detailed history of the text and melody. An additional section at the end of the book provides biographical information about authors and composers, a bibliography, a list of tune names, and a general index. The coverage is from 1871 to 1964. A very detailed and scholarly work.
