Review quote

Here are 36 hymns written between 2005 and 2008 since the author's last anthology, A Door for the Word. What makes this book especially interesting is the second half wherein Bishop Dudley-Smith gives a detailed account of the genesis and theology of each hymn. Between two and five tunes are suggested for each text and there are the usual indexes of Biblical references, metre, themes and subjects. * John Henderson, Church Music Quarterly, December 2009 *
