Anglican Hymn BooK

Does anyone have a copy (or several!) that they would donate or sell to my church choir? It is out of print and the choir is having a growth spurt!

Re: [Sheilagh Armitt] Anglican Hymn BooK

If it is that orange book Complete Anglican old and new, my church may be able to assist with at least one copy, but I would urge you not to use that book. The harmonisations are really dreadful in my opinion and the selection is now rather outdated regarding 'new songs' So you have the situation, the new songs are out of date, and the ancient songs are wrongly harmonised in many cases. CH4 (the Scottish hymnary) is fab. Common ground has some great material and I think that the New English Hymnal is a good all round resource.

Re: [hague161] Anglican Hymn BooK

As far as I know there is not a book called the Anglican Hymn Book. The church of England has never produced an authorised Hymnary as such. It always used to be Hymns Ancient and Modern, which is red and is still available (I looked on Amazon just now) I think higher churches tend to use the New English Hymnal. Common Praise is generally considered to be the successor to Hymns A&M and this may suit you well. What sort of Hymns/Songs are you after?
