The Sweet Singer of Methodism and a denizen of the Gospel Hall of Fame Ira Sankey died with Gospel on his lips, having abandoned his sensible career for a life dedicated to God and surrounded by music That enthusiasm is transmitted via the page and the colorful, emotively drenched lyrics to the reader With the love of God in their mouths, Sankey hoped that the world would also take it into their hearts The jury remains out on his main objective but what is certain is that Ira himself went straight to the heart of Gospel music This broad anthology of Christian devotional music and hymns is a pleasure to read and to vocalise, if you so choose Not only will it spark old and beloved memories but it will bring you new, dramatic, emotional material to add to your personal repertoire Allow yourself to be wrapped in your favourite Christmas carol or submerse and enjoy the catharsis of a rousing piece on religious sorrow and divine retribution Those with an interest in theological matters, the historical development of devotional music, hobbyists and those seeking an accessible medium for communicating all aspects of the Christian faith will be well served by this volume Not only will you find music and lyrics in Sacred Songs and Solos but you will also find references to the relevant biblical material, a synopsis of the development of gospel music and by inference the influence of Ira Sankey himself on the genre The resources are first class and incredibly engaging.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books Find at www.forgottenbooks.comThis book is a reproduction of an important historical work Forgotten Books uses state of the art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy In rare cases, an imperfection in the original, such as a blemish or missing page, may be replicated in our edition We do, however, repair the vast majority of imperfections successfully any imperfections that remain are intentionally left to preserve the state of such historical works....

Sacred Songs and Solos: Twelve Hundred Hymns (Classic Reprint) Reviews
It's evident that this book was machine scanned and that's pretty much it. No editing, no correcting, no organizing--just scan and sell. It's a total mess--by far the worse ebook I've ever come across in layout. Amazon should offer it for free--with an apology that it's barely worth that price.
I enjoyed seeing - and singing - many hart-to-find classics.
The new and improved version has a beautiful cover . The songs are all originals. I love this book with the old songs that meant so much to me as a child
it is wonderful.
I was trying to find this book for my mother and I am glad that the book made her very happy.
This was a gift , they were very happy
It's excellent I love signing from the hymn. Thank God it's still available for many generations to come. To God be the glory.
Bought this for my aunty because she had been looking for a copy locally but couldn't find one anywhere. She said it was exactly what she was looking for and it had all the songs she sings at church and more.
