The Union School-Song Garland. A Collection of Songs for School and Home Use; The Music Arranged for Two Trebles and Bass, and Printed in Hamilton's Patent Union Musical Notation, (Invented by Mr John Lang).
London: Bayley & Ferguson, nd. Originally published in the 1870s, this edition is probably from around the 1890s. A collection of songs for schoolchildren. "The music is written in the " patent union notation," which is an ingenious combination of the ordinary and the tonic sol-fa methods, and is suited for instrumental as well as vocal rendering. The Editor deserves credit for the excellence of his choice, both of words and music."( — Scotsman). 20cms x 17cms. Pp.188, words + musical notation, owner's name to title page. Grey/blue cloth, gilt title to front, edges slightly rubbed. VG. ** "The great favour with which the "Union School Singing-Book" has been received by Teachers has induced the preparation and issue of the present book of songs, printed in the same notation. The work contains no instructions or lessons in singing, but is simply a collection of songs for practice and recreation. It extends to six Nos, forming a rather extensive collection, embracing a large number of the best German melodies, united to suitable words, with many from American and other sources, together with a larger proportion of the home songs of our own country than it has hitherto been usual to admit into simi- lar collections for children's use. No pains have been spared to obtain good and pleasant melodies, and to unite them to suitable verses. It has been a special object, also, to make the harmonies flowing and singable, while at the same time effective and musician-like.".

Accompaniments to Plainsong for Schools. (Part One - Revised Edition).
Liverpool: Rushworth & Dreaper Ltd, (nd. c.1935). Revised edition. "As this book is chiefly intended to be used in schools, my first concern has been to make the Accompaniments as easy as possible, sacrificing harmonic interest in order to choose simple chords such as will assist the voices. In the matter of feminine cadences I have chosen that which I consider to be the lesser of two evils, preferring the possible slight dislocation of rhythm that may occur through the use of two bass notes therein to the certain sentimentalitiy that arises from the many suspensions necessary to the opposite course." (Foreword). 32cms x 23.5cms. Pp.71, musical notation throughout. Red cloth, blind-stamped title to front. Scarce. VG.
