In recent years, Hymns Old & New has outsold all other hymnbooks for the Anglican Church, and so established itself as the leading hymnal. With the continuing rich outpouring of new hymns and songs, a hymn book which justly claims to have the most exhaustive and all-embracing collection must inevitably keep pace – to embrace the best new material and include even more treasures from the past. The need of the Church to renew material for our celebrations is a healthy one, because it is a sign of the Church’s vitality.
This latest edition – Complete New Anglican Hymns Old & New is entirely revised and reset, and foreshadows the development of liturgy in the years to come. Among a total of nearly 1,000 pieces you will find hymns and songs, a selection of liturgical settings for the Eucharist, chants, and material suitable for use with children. Naturally, there is also a full set of biblical, liturgical and musical indices.
Complete Anglican Hymns Old & New is beautifully produced – a clear typeface, excellent printing and strong binding. In this new edition, the music has been set in a slightly larger page format, and bound in such a way that it falls open beautifully in the hand, or to set on the organ/piano music stand.
- 766 Hymns and Songs
