How to use the index

(1) Do not try to locate a hymn by scrolling down
- the alphabetization is inconsistent and the list
is very long (1064 entries)

(2) Instead, use the "find" feature of your browser. For Firefox
in a Windows PC, look at the toolbar at the very top of the
screen, and click on "Edit". Several buttons should appear,
including "find".

(3) Click on "find" and a small blank window should appear at the
very bottom left hand corner of the screen.

(4) Type in your search term (but read to the end of the
instructions before trying this)

(5) Probably the best move is to enter the name of the tune, or a
part of the title (observe upper/lower case, and do not use
quotation marks).The first occurrence of the search term
will be highlighted.

(6) Just to the right of the search window, click on "find next"
(or "find previous"). Many of the tune names appear more than
once, as do portions of the title.

(7) When you find the last occurence and click on "find next"
the search engine starts over with a warning that you have
"Reached end of page, continued from top". (at right end of the
toolbar containing the search term window).

(8) Now return to instruction (4) above and give it a try.
Use Arlington as a test example

(9) Press the "find next" button several times and notice
when the "Reached end of page..." appears.

(10) Check the comments under the first occurrence (entry #0023).
To look at any of the hymns referenced in the comments (or, for
that matter, any hymn by its number) use the "find" function as
follows. For example, HB55: 69 is mentioned. To go to
hymn 69 in HB55, type into the search window the following:

HB 55: 69

(be sure to include the spaces and colon - not the italics,
though, and no quotation marks).

Comments: See also HM90: 159,256. Traditional text: "Hark, A Voice
Saith 'All Are Mortal." For those (mostly organists) who
associate that text with this tune, other texts may be
jarring. Nevertheless, better to use the tune than not.
