EFFUSIVE OROTUND


"This kind of Orotund is used in the rendition of all grand, sublime, and reverential styles. It is the appropriate voice of prayer, of all the prayer services of the church, of nearly all hymns -- since they are but prayers in verse -- of the grand passages of the Prophets and Psalms, as well as the sublime utterances of the Revelation. It is also the appropriate voice for the expression of all emotions that are excited by the grandeur, vastness, or splendor of natural  objects. The prevailing pitch of the voice is low, and in profound awe, despair and horror, we descend to the lowest pitch." page 291.
