Stories Of Latter Day Saint Hymns Their Authors And Composers
1939. With illustrations. The author's purpose is to tell the stories of some of the hymns of the Church and relate the circumstances as far as known, surrounding their origin. The stories are not written from the standpoint of a learned musician. No scientific analysis of music or song is undertaken, but rather they are the product of one who loves to sing the songs of Zion and desires to understand and assist others in understanding their origin and message. Pyper provides background information on both the song and the composers.
