Excerpt from The St. Gregory Hymnal and Catholic Choir Book: Compiled, Edited and Arranged
This Hymnal contains devotional melodies from traditional sources and, so far as known, are truly Catholic in origin. The editor has selected typical melodies from sources hereto fore neglected by American and English Hymnologists. Melodies and Hymn tunes that are known and loved by the French, Slovak, Polish, Italian, German, and other Catholics, are here given in their. Original form with appropriate English texts.
The melodies have been so arranged as to be well within the range of the average voice. The extremely high keys have been carefully avoided and the limitations of the ordinary voice have been kept in mind; thus it will be found that none of the hymns intended to be sung by congregations and even by school children, rise above E flat (fourth space) or E natural. If higher keys are desired, transpositions can easily be made.
