OR,

MUSIC FOR THE MILLION.

IN THREE PARTS. Part I. --Comprising the largest number of choice Glees, Quartets, Trios, Songs,

Opera Choruses, &c., ever before published in one Collection. Part II. - Consisting of Sacred Anthems, Choruses, Quartets, &c., for Select So

cieties and Concerts. Part III. Containing most of the old popular Continental Psalm Tunes. Thus making the most complete collection, in all its features, ever before published. By I. B. WOODBURY, author of the “Dulcimer, ," The Cythara,” &c. &c.

Extract from the Preface. Here may be found Glees, Quartets, Trios and Songs, suited to every occasion. If merry, here are pieces that will add to merriment; if sad, harmonies that will soothe sadness. If longing for home fill the mind, the dear scenes that cluster there are painted in many a song. Requiems to the loved departed are also here. Indeed, almost every scene to which the chequered life of man is subject is here made the refrain of song. For ihe Sabbath eve, when

"Softly fades the twilight ray

of the holy Sabbath day," and when music is particularly acceptable, the old tunes our fathers sang may be found in Part III. Part II. is somewhat more elaborate, and adapted to Sacred Concerts. That the book may tend to make man happier and better is the sincere desire of the author.
