About this Item

(MUSIC). Lyman, William. The Design and Benefits of Instrumental Musick. Considered in a Sermon, Delivered at Lebanon Goshen, May 7, 1807. On the Occasion of having an Organ introduced as an aid in the worship and melody of God's house. New London: Ebenezer Cady, 1807. 18 p. + final blank C2. Disbound from a pamphlet volume. Very faint dampstain at lower corner of title page, else very good. A presentation copy, inscribed "For the Revd David Higgins from the Author." The occasion for the sermon was the introduction of a "barrel or hand organ; but of uncommonly large size," constructed for the congregation by a local man, Erastus Wattles. Lyman defends instrumental music in churches in general, explaining what he feels are its obvious benefits to worship. He refers to Wattles as the "self-taught and ingenious constructor of this curious machine." S&S 12955. Bookseller Inventory # 13791
