Just as the title suggests, this is an indispensable companion for the Anglican clergyman, choirmaster, organist, musician, or anyone working in Protestant pastoral ministry. A handy reference work that provides an essay on the history of each hymn tune and text, with biographies of authors, composers, translators, and arrangers. Very useful for providing historically accurate information when making reference to the hymns of the day in a sermon or Sunday School teaching.

Out of print and hard to

you want to see Aqunisas' Latin for "Now my tongue the mystery telling"? you want to read the syriac title for "Strengthen for service, Lord"? they're on facing pages in this wondrous book, clearly written for a long-lost era when we still appreciated philology and depth in music.
