Alfred H. Miles, ed.  The Sacred Poets of the Nineteenth Century.  1907.
 
Ac Etiam by Alfred H. Miles
 
BESIDES the religious and didactic poets represented in these volumes, there are many whose verse—often of rare beauty and wide acceptance—calls for less extended representation, and who can therefore be more conveniently dealt with under a general heading than in individual notices separated and signed upon the plan adopted for the body of this work. These have been reserved for treatment here, not because they mark a different standard of excellence or selection, but simply for typographical and economic reasons—the preservation of a certain uniformity of appearance and the saving of space.  1
  The religious revivals of the century have all found some expression in original song, while they have stimulated the labours of many scholars who have enriched English hymnody from the wide field of translation.
