The psalmist invites us to "sing to the Lord a new song." St. Paul urges the churches to praise God "in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs," The Reformation began in a burst of congregational singing. In our worship the people have always taken an active and significant part, and a zeal for corporate worship has featured every period of renewal within Protestantism. Our hymn book, therefore, bears testimony to our concern that worship should be first and foremost an act of prayer and praise to God, understood and entered into by the whole company of the faithful...." - Preface from Pilgrim Hymnal

From the dawn of creation, when "the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy," psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs have been vehicles of the faith, the aspiration, and the joy of God's people.The corporate praise and choral prayer of a worshiping congregation have been characteristic expressions of its response to divine grace...." - Preface from The Hymnbook

The Program Agency and the General Assembly Mission Board responded by creating a hymnbook committee of eighteen persons, reflecting the breadth and diversity of the church. The group included hymnologists and professional musicians. Members of the committee, which was established in accordance with General Assembly guidelines, were from small and large churches and represented the ethnic diversity of the denomination. They sought to affirm the centrality of the sacraments, ecumenical and missions dimensions, the perspectives of women, and the concerns of youth and age...." - Preface from The Presbyterian Hymnal, Pew Edition

In 1959 the Liturgical Press published a prime example of that with the first edition of Our Parish Prays and Sings.Through several editions, including the Book of Sacred Song, the American parish has come to know the best of classical Christian hymnody, in both the vernacular and the Latin chant. Much of the tradition of thirty years in promoting congregational song has been included in The Collegeville Hymnal, with emphasis as well on music and texts of notable merit gleaned from the work of contemporary composers and writers. Indeed, particular attention has been paid to texts from which archaic or non-inclusive language has been eliminated, except where poetic importance precludes change...." - Introduction from The Collegeville Hymnal

It claims as its rightful inheritance all that is truly ecumenical in the Church of every age and every land. Not the least part of its legacy is the liturgy, which has moved from beginnings in Asia Minor to the western end of the Mediterranean, to Northern Europe and to the Western Hemisphere. in this transition it has crossed the barriers of language from Greek to Latin to German to English. The Lutheran churches which have prepared the Common Liturgy are located in the New World and worship in the English language...." - Preface to the Liturgy from Service Book And Hymnal

By Christopher L. Webber

This book is in very good condition. There is little to no wear on the cover and spine the corners have not been bumped. The pages are crisp, white and clean of any markings. "The increasing use of the Psalter in the liturgy makes it desirable that there be musical settings which can be easily used by any congregation. Anglican chant, plainsong, and the Gelineau method all require an attention to phrasing which is quite different from the set relationship between words and music of the usual hymn or secular song. The metrical method, on the other hand, fits the psalms to simple and, in most cases, familiar melodies. Most metrical psalms can be easily sung the first time they are presented...." - Author's Introduction from A New Metrical Psalter

"As by the action of the General Convention (in setting forth a new collection of hymns), a new edition of the Church Hymnal was made necessary, so by the action of the same Convention in providing for an authorized pointing of the Canticles, etc., a new edition of the Chant Book seems to be required, or at least desired by many who have requested the editor of the Church Hymnal to prepare it. The same principal which guided the editor in the preparation of the Hymnal, viz., to provide for the needs of the average choir and congregation, has guided him in his work on this Chant and Service Book; and he sincerely hopes that it may be found useful wherever it is adopted. Concord, Massachusetts, Sept., A.D. 1894..." Preface from The Chant And Service Book
