Redemption Songs (ca. 1910). This is the title of a volume published in London by Pickering and Inglis (dated by Gordon Bell as ca. 1910). Its sub-title was ‘A choice collection of 1000 hymns and choruses for evangelistic meetings, solo singers, choirs, and the home’. It must have been intended as a British rival to Sankey*’s Sacred Songs and Solos, though it was never so successful. It began with ‘All hail the power of Jesu’s name’*, set to two tunes, MILES LANE and DIADEM.
The sections of the book give an idea of its contents and general direction. The hymns were divided as follows (1-683):
Praise and Opening
Warning and Entreaty
Repentance and Decision
