American Sacred Music provides access to sacred music published in the United States, with a focus on publications from the Midwest. Dating from the 19th and early 20th centuries, these are primarily collections of hymns and anthems, with other types of sacred music, such as cantatas and revival songs, also represented.
This digital collection illustrates the variety of religious and sacred music found within the musical life of Wisconsin. Hymns, anthems and sacred songs were by no means restricted to congregational singing during church services. At revival meetings, at home, at singing schools and in the classroom, sacred music was an important community activity.
The books have interesting music lessons for school along with practical lessons, like the one above, that should be practiced every day. Browse the collection and you might learn something about singing.
