"By the Bishops, the Clergy, and the Laity of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America, in Convention, this twenty-ninth day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and thirty-two; this book of Psalms in Metre, selected from the Psalms of David, with Hymns, is set forth, and allowed to be sung in all congregations of the said church, before and after Morning and Evening Prayer, and also before and after Sermons, at the discretion of the minister.

“ And it shall be the duty of every minister of any church, either by stand. BAWAH TH ing directions, or from time to time, to appoint the portions of Psalms which

are to be sung."

" And further, it shall be the duty of every minister, with such assistance as he can obtain from persons skilled in music, to give order concerning the tunes to be sung at any time in his church; and especially, it shall be his duty to suppress all light and uns emly music, and all indecency and irreverence, in the performance, by which vain and ungodly persons profane the service of the Sanctuary."
