Product Description

The book discusses the importance of hymn singing and service music in Episcopal worship, as well as the history, structure, and content of The Hymnal 1982. While most parishioners participate in music making at some level (such as singing hymns or common responses), fewer people might understand the specific genres that comprise the music of an Episcopal worship service or the liturgical meaning behind each selection. This book provides a more in-depth understanding of this rich and complex tradition, discussing the history and evolution of music within the Episcopal Church, including its Anglican roots. Additional topics--such as psalm singing, anthems, major works, organs, and other Anglican traditions (such as Lessons and Carols)--are also addressed.

Music is an essential element in Anglican worship; in fact, The Hymnal 1982 is used in
virtually every Episcopal service of worship that involves singing. While most parishioners
participate in music making at some level (such as singing hymns or common
responses), fewer people might understand the specific genres that comprise the
music of an Episcopal worship service or the liturgical meaning behind each selection.
This book provides a more in-depth understanding of this rich and complex tradition,
discussing the history and evolution of music within the Episcopal Church, including its
Anglican roots.

The book is designed to help clarify—and simplify—the importance of hymn singing and
service music in Episcopal worship, as well as explain the history, structure, and content
of The Hymnal 1982.

For those seeking to gain a better understanding of Anglican musical heritage, increase
participation in congregational singing, or expand their use of the Welcome to series.
