The Church Hymnary: Third Edition

Thomas H Keir

The Convener of the Revision Committee looks at some points of special interest in the forthcoming publication of the new book, drawing attention to the liturgical pattern of its contents, the placing of the psalms through the book, the policy regarding modern hymns, the  more objective character of Baptismal hymns, the great increase in the provision of Communion hymns, prose settings of the psalms, and the commissioning of new tunes from some 30 contemporary Scottish-based composers.
