Here are two brief but forceful works by the famous American Puritan John Cotton.
In Of The Singing of Psalms, Cotton discusses whether the singing of Psalms is a New Testament practice, what scripture songs should be sung, who should sing in the worship service, and in what manner the Psalms should be sung.
The second piece, A Short Discourse argues when the Lord’s Day begins, whether in the morning or in the evening.
Author John Cotton (December 29, 1585 – December 23, 1652) was a principal among the New England Puritan ministers, who also included Thomas Hooker, Increase Mather (who became his son-in-law), John Davenport, and Thomas Shepard and John Norton, who wrote his first biography. Cotton was the grandfather of Cotton Mather, who was named after him.
