    Review from British Church Newspaper (20/04/11) reproduced by kind permission. Though this journal is obviously issued primarily for the academic market (and would grace any University library shelf!) and for those of an antiquarian bent, it will appeal to all with a spiritual interest in and concern for the Church of Christ in these islands. It is good to see an unashamedly Protestant and indeed Calvinistic approach that can also hold its own in learned discourse! In fact Dr Somerset, in his Preface, deals head on with the question of 'prejudice' in ostensibly 'objective' academia and shows how such a colossus of Scottish historiography as Dr D. Hay Fleming (1849-193I) has suffered absurd eclipse because of his thoroughgoing calvinist outlook. It is fitting, then, that this volume contains an article by Dr Hay Fleming from 1924 and also a massively researched piece on him by Roy Middleton. A copy of Dr Hay Fleming's Guide to St Andrews has been in the possession of your reviewer's... More > family for years and bears regular fascinating revisits so it was good to learn that Hay Fleming felt this little production one of his most satisfying works. The tradition of 'giving out the line' in Presbyterian singing- where precentor and congregation engage in antiphonal progression through a metrical psalm- is treated in an excellent article by Norman Campbell. Intriguing to discover this phenomenon was also known in English calvinistic Baptist circles in southern England, right into this century! In Lewis religious folklore, the weak-minded Angus of the Hills is well known as a wonderful Victorian saint and Dr Somerset gives a delightful account of him and includes a poignant calotype photograph. Other informative entries on 19th Century Free Church figures along with one on Thomas Boston and one on Samuel Rutherford also grace this issue. All in all, a superb venture and we eagerly anticipate the next volume! Ewan W.Wilson< Less
