PREFACE.

[ocr errors]

By the issue of "The New Standard Song Book,” the Editor meets his readers with the eighth volume of the Series popularly known as “Routledge's Song Books." A separate title has been adopted for each volume, for trade purposes, but no song has been repeated ; so that while each collection is complete in itself, the entire work is essentially so, inasmuch as it presents the most extensive collection of Lyrics hitherto included in one Series, and which, when complete, it is hoped will be found equally as acceptable to the student as it is acknowledged to have been

hitherto to the vocalist.

The Editor has not, while professing to

“the best songs in our language, and none beside the best," encumbered this work with lengthy odes and minor poems never intended to be sung, but has included only such as have been set to music or adapted to familiar melodies—the songs, in fact, of the people. Time alone will tell how many or how few of the more modern songs in the volume will be found worthy of the “standard” ones with which they are incorporated
