Meeting the diverse needs of your parish The Collegeville Hymnal strengthens congregational participation through the highest standards in music and liturgy. It serves as a comprehensive music resource that invites and encourages singing in the parish but does not neglect the choral and cantorial music recommended by the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy and the American Bishops. That purpose has been achieved for choir directors, cantors, and congregations like your own who desire a hymnal that fills all your music needs: traditional and contemporary hymns, sung Masses, weddings, funerals, Responsorial Psalms, and more.
Choosing from this eclectic collection of music is made simple by The Collegeville Hymnal's comprehensive set of indices. The indices are concise and easy to use and can assist you in planning the whole liturgical year.
Harmonizing with Catholic heritage - your parish's classic music favorites The Collegeville Hymnal is your source for the best of traditional music. It includes a wealth of established hymns - classic favorites your choir and assembly already enjoy singing. Particular attention has been given to the texts of these traditional hymns, and archaic and non-inclusive language has been eliminated except where texts of poetic importance are involved.
All of the hymns have been arranged to meet the needs of the choir, assembly, and instrumentalists. These classic favorites add strength to your music program, and not-so-familiar hymns offer you an exciting opportunity to enlarge and enrich your parish's music base.
