For over twenty years the various editions of Hymns Old & New have kept pace with the evolving needs and demands of congregations. This edition offers a qualitative leap in that same tradition: as before, a broad collection of hymns, ancient, traditional and modern, but extended and enhanced; a completely revised selection of liturgical settings for Mass; responsorial psalms for all Sundays and major feasts; an additional section of material suitable for use with children. And, of course, a full set of biblical, liturgical and musical indexes.
Liturgical Hymns Old & New is beautifully produced – a clear typeface, excellent printing and strong binding. Just take a look at the contents for an insight into the breadth and quality of this latest edition: over 1,000 hymns, songs, psalms and mass settings, 92 settings of mass texts, 673 hymns and songs, 100 children's hymns, 41 Rizza and Taize chants, 179 responsorial psalms for every Sunday and 7 benediction settings.
