This classic study of Christian hymns, by Theron Brown and Hezekiah Butterworth, tells the story of many sacred songs. Some of these are easily recognizable, and some have not been sung for many years, and are unknown today. With a special emphasis on telling the story of both the lyrics (hymn), and music (tune), The Story of the Hymns and Tunes is a captivating read for those interested in historical, Christian music. Once a popular reference, this book was last revised by Mr. Brown for publication in 1906. At CrossLife Press™, we have published this same, classic edition with a modern, readable typeface; expanded Table of Contents; and an all new index (in the paperback edition). We hope you find joy in reading the stories of old favorites and discovering new songs, long forgotten!
