Abstract

Charles Price Jones Below is the opening segment of Charles Price Jones' two-part essay, "Inductive Lessons in Vocal Music," which closes his second collection of hymns, Jesus Only, Nos. 1 and 2, published in 1902. Although the second part of the article is proof of the musical aptitude of this prolific hymnist and self-taught musician, it is nothing more than a standard lesson in the fundamentals of music theory­ clefs, meter and key signatures, scales, accidentals, repeat signs, and so Jo ·th. Jones says himself at the outset of his theory lesson that "this is not an exhaustive treatise on the subject, but it will give one sufficient knowledge to be a fairly intelligent reader of music.'' On the other hand, the initial section of the essay presents Jones' personal theology of church music and musicianship. Even and spiritually presently the brief and unpretentious points are practically instructive for music directors wishing for their choristers to "sing with the spirit."· (a) Unless there is music in one, it is hard to get it out with ever so much training; yet one does not know what he can do until he tries.
