The hymn has been of great importance to the people in the South throughout their history. In life and in death the ministry of psalms and hymns has been a vital part of the fabric of life. Little is known about Southern Hymnology and almost nothing is known about Confederate Hymnology. A gospel minister observing the Confederate Army at worship declared, �The voices which now poured forth their strength in singing the songs of Zion had shouted in the charge and the victory.� One Southern minister, theological educator and hymn writer remonstrated, �We cannot afford to lose these old hymns. They are full of the Gospel; they breathe the deepest emotions of pious hearts in the noblest strains of poetry; they have been tested and approved by successive generations of those that loved the Lord; they are the surviving fittest ones from thousands of inferior productions; they are hallowed by abundant usefulness and tenderest memories.� This was written by Rev. Dr. Basil Manly, Jr. one of the founding professors of Southern Seminary. The Songs of Southern Zion: Confederate Hymnology is a much needed volume to rectify the void that has existed regarding the hymnology of the people of the South.
