This translation of the Whole Book of Psalms into Metre, 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 standing directions, or from time to time, to appoint the Por tions of Psalms which are to be sung.

And further, it shall be the duty of every Minister, with such as sistance as he can obtain from persons skilled in music, to give ord concerning the Tunes to be sung, at any time, in his Church: And, especially, it shall be his duty, to suppress all light and unseemly music, and all inde ency and irreverence in the performance; by which vain and ungodly persons profane the service of the Sano tuary.
