This edition is a survey of early American composers of this repertory, and it makes the music available in a critical edition for performance and study.  Volume 2 comprises anthems for specific events, such as the dedication of a church, the ordination of a minister, funerals, charity meetings, and marriages.  Also included in volume 2 are fifteen anthems whose use is undesignated and which could serve any number of occasions.  All the anthems are typical of their times and represent some of the best music of their composers.
