About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion: Containing a Choice Collection of Tunes, Hymns, Psalms, Odes and Anthems: Selected from the Most Eminent Authors in the United States by Walker, William.

Description:

HB, oblong 8vo, poor copy with wear to boards, rubbing and tares at spine ends, "New Edition, Thoroughly Revised and Much Enlarged". 336 pages, with both general and metrical indices. Paper covered boards over leather spine. Hinges cracked but holding.Edges toned with scattered light foxing. The final and definitive edition of William Walker's anthology of American songs arranged for shape-note or fasola singing and one of the most important books on American music ever published. First published in 1835 and eventually numbering as many as 600,000 copies, The Southern Companion is an example of a book literally worn to pieces by its users over the decades. Reprinted in 1939, 1966 and more recently by the University of Kentucky Press, original copies of The Southern Harmony are virtually non-existent. Of the definitive 1854 edition, less than 20 copies remain in various libraries. All reprint editions are based on the 1854 edition. Note: there is an error in pagination in the 1854 edition, skipping from page 216 to page 249. The work is complete however and all reprint editions continue this errant pagination.
