Charles Stobie finds fault with the new Church Hymnary: in its treatment of the metrical psalms, the unsingable nature of the modern hymn tunes, and the dropping of sung amens. He commends the inclusion of prose psalms, and defends the Victorian element of the book, taking issue with an editorial in a preceding issue of the Review. Colin Miller takes issue with a review in the previous issue of The Divine Service which wished to delete an opening metrical psalm; the writer argues against this judgement for historical reasons.
