Southern Harmony

by William Walker


This electronic version of William Walker's The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion (1835) has hundreds of nineteenth-century folk tunes. William Walker's collection of sacred songs is the gold standard of tune books. All kinds of tunes are found in this work from hymns to odes and psalms to anthems. The common thread is that they are appropriate for corporate and individual worship settings. Part I of the book contains easy tunes while Part II contains longer songs with more sophisticated musical accompaniment. The last part of the book is an index of"New Tunes"
