Illustrated hymns [Graystone Bird]

General description of this series
Notes

A large series of slide sets illustrating hymns, mainly in short sets of between 3 and 7 slides, with one slide for each verse of the hymn and sometimes an additional slide for the refrain.

The lyrics typically appear in a printed box inserted into the photographic image, which does not necessarily relate directly to the lyrics. Many of the images are in the art-photography style typical of Bird's various sets of 'studies'.
