IT is greatly to be desired that all sing with the understanding as well as with the heart. To aid in securing this end more fully, Marks of Expression have been placed at the Selections from the Psalms, and at the Hymns, in all editions of the Book.

It is not intended that these be followed mechanically, but that they be looked upon as a series of suggestions to be used as a general guide in interpreting and expressing the meaning of the Hymns.

The Marks of Expression are:

P Piano-Soft
тр Mezzo-piano-Moderately soft.
pp

Pianissimo-Very soft.
f = Forte-Loud.
i Fortissimo--Very loud.

Crescendo-Gradually growing louder.
dim Diminuendo-Gradually becoming softer.
