A New Book of Old Hymns

Abstract

A collection of hymns focusing on chant, including a litany, rounds, antiphons, carols, for all seasons of the Church’s year, plus Ordinaries of the Mass, Benediction and some English hymns. Chant is newly typeset, not photocopied. English translations for each Latin hymn. Indexed for easy reference. This Fourth Edition updates the Prayer for the Pope with a new illustration of Pope Francis as well as lots of little improvements including the addition of a popular setting of Christus Vincit. There are lots of books of Gregorian chant out there, but only a few with English translations of all the text. This book puts the translation right up under the Latin to make it easy to pray with understanding. This book gives a window into the history of hymns. Many will recognise these hymns are still popular today in different arrangements. This is a book to browse and enjoy at your own pace.
