The Thomasius Epistles make a most interesting series to supplement the old Hieronymic series. The following "Hymns and Sermon Texts" was prepared for the use of the teachers, choirmasters, and organists at the Church of St. Luke in Chicago. The teachers are in this way enabled to practice the hymns and do preliminary and introductory work on the sermon text in the classrooms. Choirmasters can match their music with the sermon texts and hymns. The organist has an opportunity to select preludes, voluntaries, postludes, etc., in the most efficient and proper manner. The entire program worked out in this way gives point and direction to the unification of the services.
