Description

In the Christian tradition, hymns represent a rich tapestry of popular music with its roots at least as far back as medieval times. There are tunes with ancient origins and words, sometimes with a scriptural foundation and some written more recently, that have formed part of the liturgy perhaps since the first groups of early Christians came together for worship. The 18th and 19th centuries were perhaps the high point of the development of hymns, and many of the most familiar and deeply loved hymns still sung today derive from those times. This is a collection of 100 of the best-known hymns and carols in the Anglican, Episcopal and Catholic traditions. All the words are provided, along with the tunes and their four-part harmonies. They range from "Morning has Broken", to "O God, Our Help in Ages Past" and spirituals like "Steal Away".show more
