Publication date and place: 1800 by Isaiah Thomas and Ebenezer T. Andrews in Boston, 72 pp.

Description: Temperley, in The Hymn Tune Index says this was published in November 1800, therefore before the publication of The Modern Collection. "After 1796, Holden quit signing his name to tunebooks, except for editions of the Worcester Collection. Nevertheless, several anonymous volumes of the later eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries have been positively identified as Holden's works … These include Sacred Dirges (1800), The Modern Collection (1800), Plain Psalmody (1800), the third edition of The Union Harmony, The Charlestown Collection (1803), and Occasional Pieces (1807)" (Music 1998).
