Lloyd Hymnal

Primitive Hymns, compiled by Benjamin Lloyd. This important tuneless hymnal dating from 1841 contains many texts, un-attributed here but often by Watts and other English hymnists, which have long been used by hymn composers. This hymnal often contains more verses than one finds in most hymnals with music. It is a valuable source of texts for contemporary composers of shape-note hymns. Hardbound. The price for a single copy is $15 plus ($4.95) postage. NC residents add 6% sales tax. Order from Primitive Hymns Corp., Ms. Betty Woodard, Box 92, Rocky Mount, NC 27802-0092.  (252) 291-2439.
