New Hymns and Worship Songs has a specific purpose: to update existing hymn books so your parish can sing 440 of the best and most loved compositions of recent years alongside the traditional hymns found in all books. In this way, parishes which have only recently purchased their hymn books, or are not in a position to replace them at present, can benefit with the minimum financial outlay.
- Balanced and comprehensive Review by Cam Ma Via Amazon
The indices are splendid, with suggested hymns for each Sunday and major festival in the Revised Common lectionary (of use to other denominations, therefore) and a listing of hymns matched to scripture texts - invaluable for the parish priest, organist or preacher given the task of creating a harmonious liturgy.
I use it in conjunction with an older compilation at present - but this book will shortly replace it completely. (Posted on 11/09/2013)
