Quo Tendimus

J M Ross

Referring to an earlier article by Rev Charles Stobie lamenting the absence of Amens at the end of hymns, Ross argues that this was a nineteenth century practice, extrapolated from the Amen at the end of the doxology in medieval hymns. This was a mistaken practice and it is noted that since the English Hymnal of 1906, other hymnals have gradually emended their practice.
