"Preface: In the preparation of the Sceptre we have endeavored,... to meet every want of the Choir, the Teacher, and the Elementary Singing Class. The Metrical Department contains an abundant variety of tunes in all the metres in ordinary use, so that a hymn will rarely be met with in any of our Church Hymn Books for which an appropriate tune cannot be found in this work...

At the end of the Long, Common and Short metres, we have inserted a choice selection of Standard Old Tunes of corresponding measure....The Student's Compend, designed for the use of learners, is a succinct, yet full and perspicuous exposition of musical notation and the principles of music - just what the Elementary Student wants....."
