He undertook the task, but left it unfinished at his lamenteddeath, committing the manuscript to me in his last hours to arrange andcomplete.To do this proved a labor of considerable magnitude, since what had beendone showed evidence of the late author's failing strength, and when, ina conference with the publishers, it was proposed to combine the twobooks of Mr. Butterworth, the _Story of the Hymns_ and the _Story of theTunes_, in one volume, the task was doubled.The charming popular style and story-telling gift of the well-knowncompiler of these books had kept them in demand, the one for thirty andthe other for fifteen years, but later information had discounted someof their historic and biographical matter, and, while many of themonographs were too meagre, others were unduly long.
