HOWARD

M.

DOW.

Grand Lodge of Massachusetts, Office of the Grand Master, Boston, August 12, 1869.
Brother Howard M. Dow, Grand Organist of our Grand Lodge,

My Dear Frater

:•

I

have examined the Mss. of your " Masonic Orpheus," which you were kind enough to submit to me.

Your

experience*!!!

the department of song appertaining to our Fraternity has prompted

degrees of the so-called York Rite.

The
"

selection of the

Hymns

you to a work which will receive the unqualified thanks of the Craft, in all has been judicious. The arrangement of the Music for male voices supplies a
assembled
in

deficiency which has long been apparent.
I

most cheerfully recommend the
its

Orpheus

"

to the " Craft universal,"

Lodge, Chapter, Council, and Commandery, and

I

sincerely

believe that

general use will tend to elevate the work, and render the assemblies of the Brethren both pleasant and attractive.

With Fraternal

regards,

Wm.

S.

Gardner, Grand Master.

PREFACE.
Music, like the other Arts,
progressive.

is

In this regard, upon looking over the various collections of Masonic music in use, the standard
is

is

neither so high as the progress of the Art demands, nor
iamiliar airs mainly in use
voices.
It

the arrangement adapted especially for male voices, as

it

should be.

The Psalmody and
composed of male

were composed and arranged

for

mixed

voices,

and so are

ineffective

and unsuited

to choirs necessarily

was while attempting to remedy these
for his

defects in style

and arrangement, by consulting the works of the best composers, and re-arranging
efforts

and adapting them

own use

in the various

Degrees and Orders, and his

being so favorably received by his Masonic Brethren, that the

author was persuaded to enlarge his original design, and prepare a Manual for general use; the present volume, which he hopes will meet the approval
of the Fraternity, being the result.
It is

not too

much

to assert that there is scarcely a

Lodge, Chapter, Council, or Commandery which does not

possess within itself the material, which, by proper cultivation, would be enabled to render such music as the occasion requires in an acceptable

manner

;

and the impressiveness and solemnity of appropriate music, combined with the work of the various degrees,

is

unquestionable.

The

majority of pieces contained in these pages the author has endeavored to bring within the ordinary range of male voices, and to that end, has resorted to
transpositions in
all

cases,

when deemed

necessary.

Also, in order to meet

all

tastes

and

capacities, a considerable portion of the

work has been

allotted to familiar tunes.

That
Fraternity,

his efforts. may result in elevating the standard,
is

and increasing the interest

in the musical portion of the

work of our much cherished

the sincere wish of the

AUTHOR.
