Scheme for Rendering Psalmody Congregational (1835)
Together with the Sol-fa Tune Book (1839)
First published in the 1830s, this treatise marked the beginning of a new era in British music teaching.
The publication of Sarah Glover's treatise marked the beginning of a new era in music teaching in English schools. Instead of following tradition by teaching musical facts, this Norwich schoolteacher introduced her pupils to direct experience of music through song, deducing theory from practice, and developing musical literacy through the use of indigenous sol-fa.
