THIRTY-TWO SELECT CHANTS; arranged for Four Voices, with Accompaniment. By T. INGRAM. Fcap. 8vo,

sewed, 6d.

These Chants are printed in small music type. They may be separated and placed in a Psalter or Prayer Book, so as to be conveniently presented to the eye, along with the Psalm.

THE CHORAL RESPONSES AND LITANIES OF THE UNITED CHURCH OF ENGLAND AND IRELAND, collected from authentic sources by the Rev. JOHN JEBB, A.M., Rector of Peterstow, Herefordshire. Folio, 30s.

The present work contains a full collection of the harmonised compositions of ancient date; including nine sets of preces and responses, and fifteen litanies, with a few of the more ancient Psalm Chants. They are given in full score, and in their proper cliffs. In the upper part, however, the treble is substituted for the "cantus or "medius" cliff; and the whole work is so arranged as not only to suit the library of the musical student, but to be adapted for use in the Choir.

In the Preface the authorities for the several documents are stated, the variations between the different copies noticed, and a succinct history given of this department of the English Choral Service since the Reformation.

"The judicious endeavour of a veteran philologist to extend the philosophical study of language by popularising Horn Tooke's 'Diversions of Purley.'

"We have the various acceptations, in which every word has been used by approved writers, collected by Dr. Richardson, in a Dictionary such as, perhaps, no other language could ever boast; and we have a new guide for the theory and use of languages, exemplifying his (H. Tooke's) principles by applying them to our tongue."-Quarterly Review. No. LXX.

"It is an admirable addition to our Lexicography,' supplying a great desideratum, as exhibiting the biography of each word, its birth, parentage, and education, the changes that have befallen it, the company it has kept, and the connexions it has formed, by a rich series of quotations, all in chronological order."-Quarterly Review. March, 1847.

"In most cases Richardson's Dictionary, the only one from which I can promise you effectual help, for it is the only English one, in which Etymology assumes the dignity of a Science, will put you in the right position for judging why the Word has been suggested to you."--Trench on the Study of Words.

By the late HENRY GUNNING, M.A., Senior Esquire Bedell. Second Edition, Two vols., post 8vo., price 218.

"Some of the stories are extremely piquant, and others are interesting as pictures of manners and habits of our forefathers, and such as are not to be procured from the ordinary records of information respecting bygone times." -Cambridge Chronicle.

"We have preferred amusing extracts in such as we have taken from Mr. Gunning's 'Reminiscences; but let not the reader suppose that there is not also grave information in them. The volumes contain interesting notices of many very distinguished characters connected with the period they describe, and with whom the author was personally acquainted."-Examiner.

A Tale.

By Mrs.

"A sound and intelligent book. We can conscientiously recommend it. We have gone through it with interest, and are perfectly certain that those of our readers who may peruse it, especially such as have children, will thank us for drawing attention to a work so innocently amusing and pleasantly instructive. We have no hesitation in pronouncing it one of the best works of its kind."-Churchman's Magazine.

THE HAYMAKERS' HISTORIES. Twelve Cantos in Terza Rima. By RUTHER. 12mo, price 4s.

"This is a scholarly little book, sweet as a meadow at haytime, and full of summer influences. We confess this little volume excites our curiosity; and as to the writer, the skill with which the metre is carried through, the almost immaculate correctness of the rhymes, and the equality of strength which pervades the whole, would indicate a poet of some standing, although the style resembles none that we remember. Really, an imitation of some of Crabbe's works becomes in his hands a poem as dainty and fanciful as the garden scenes of Queen Fiametta in the Decamerone.' "Athenæum.

Many a faithful miniature of healthy rustic life."-Westminster Review. "The bard often rises to the fervour and dignity of a true poet of nature and the heart."-Dublin Advertiser.
