The singing of hymns and psalms in worship pre-dates Christianity. It is something that Jesus himself would have been familiar with in the temple, and he certainly sang at the Last Supper; 'and after psalms had been sung they left for the Mount of Olives', writes Matthew. Although none of the hymns on this recording can be dated from the time of our Lord, we do start at the 7th century, and the listener will hear many of the hymns most loved by today's Christians. Some of the hymns are sung in the traditional manner; others have been newly arranged in a strikingly original way, by Colin Mawby, while the remainder are prefaced or followed by a short improvisation by Malcolm Archer. We feel that the recording amply demonstrates that hymn-singing is not just alive and well, but flourishing beyond all measure.

Malcolm Archer and Colin Mawby made the arrangements for this recording, a fact that speaks for itself! Plenty of style.


Praise, my soul, the King of heaven
When I survey the wondrous cross
Thine be the glory
Crown him with many crowns
My song is love unknown
All hail the power of Jesus' name
The Church's one foundation
Holy, holy, holy! Lord God almighty
Christ is made the sure foundation
The King of love my shepherd is
Guide me, O thou great Redeemer
Rejoice, the Lord is King
Love divine, all loves excelling
Praise to the Lord, the Almighty
Alleluia, sing to Jesus
O praise ye the Lord
The Lord's my shepherd
Lord of all hopefulness
Dear Lord and Father of mankind
Abide with me
