This classic hymnal developed by the Stamps-Baxter publishing company and released in 1956 remained as one of the top 10 music books sold for many years and continues to be one of the most popular hymnals in its class. Featuring old-time gospel standards with choral arrangements typeset in shape note style, this original captures the singing style taught in the Stamps-Baxter music schools.
Absolutely love this book! These are the classic songs I learned at my grandparents small country church. To be able to have them in this large book is a blessing. I can actually see the print without my reading glasses. The book is also bound very well and lays flat on a music stand.
I was trying to order the second edition in the large print version. And since this product was listed under the second edition smaller version, I mistakenly thought I was getting the second edition. Guess it was my fault to an extent, but it was misleading to have them on the same page.
