Walker originally published in Faith and Facts, October, Back in the very late 's and early 's, the conditions in this new nation appeared just right for a number of different men from different denominational backgrounds in different parts of the country to begin calling for a return to New Testament Christianity by renouncing all denominational divisions created by the various creeds of men and uniting solely upon what the Bible actually says. One of the facts discovered and emphasized by these "restorers" was that the early church used only congregational singing in worship, rather than the trained choirs and instrumental music which had been added by men over the years. So it is no surprise that very early many of them began publishing hymnbooks for use in congregational singing. He was soon joined by Abner Jones, and together they published Hymns, Original and Selected, around , probably a revision of Smith's work. A third edition was published in , and a seventh in A second edition was published in
May 33 Although the book was printed in , it is still referred to as the " hymnal" because of the publication date on the title page. The Kirtland printing of the LDS hymnbook was probably very small - perhaps copies at most. Today, original copies of this hymnbook are extremely rare; less than a dozen are known to exist.
The new hymnal contained hymns pages before the index , still in words-only format. Of these, 77 hymns had been included in the hymnbook.
Many of the hymns included in the hymnal were more focused on grace, the blood of Christ, and the cross than other LDS hymn collections. After the succession crisis in the early Latter Day Saint movement following Joseph Smith's death , this hymnal was largely ignored in favor of the Manchester hymnal by those church members who followed the Quorum of the Twelve and moved to Utah.
This " Manchester Hymnal ", or "Small Hymnal", as it came to be called, was by far the longest-lived of all LDS hymnals, with 25 editions published between and Over the years, publication of this hymnal moved from Manchester to Liverpool, and finally to Salt Lake City.
As more hymns were added, the book grew from pages in to pages in the edition. However, it was still a words-only hymnal; the tunes were sung from memory. Unofficial LDS hymnbooks with music[ edit ] Early hymnbooks published by the LDS church were text-only, with the tunes selected from memory or from tune books.
Two unofficial hymnbooks in the s and s began the process of including music in LDS hymnals. In , G.
Gardner and Jesse C. Little published a small hymnal in Bellows Falls, Vermont. This unofficial hymnbook is unique in early LDS history, because it was the first Latter-day Saint hymnal to include music with the words. This hymnal includes tunes for 18 of the 90 hymns found in the hymnbook. In addition, another 17 hymns were printed without music.
Hymn number one in this hymnal, "The Spirit of God", may be the very first LDS hymn ever published with musical notation. At that time, many of the familiar LDS Church's hymns that are sung today were finally fixed in place - but not with the tunes that were sung back in The Psalmody was a conscious effort by church leaders to develop a hymn style of their own.
Budding composers in the church were encouraged to submit new tunes to fit the new and old lyrics. Note that your submission may not appear immediately on our site. E-mail This Review.
