Review quote

'It is my prediction that for those congregations who seek to keep pace with contemporary developments in hymn-writing ... this new hymnal will quickly become the standard by which all others are judged.' -- Peter Westfield New Directions 20130501 'if Common Worship was graded as 'Good' in 2000, this 2013 edition of A&M will certainly be a grade higher. It is a volume which deserves to be in regular use by all church musicians and worship leaders.' -- Ian Sharp Church Music Quarterly 20130901
