Three more new ones came in yesterday, all recent this time, and two of them words-only.

The one with music is Lift Up Your Hearts , the 2013 jointly published hymnal of the Christian Reformed Church and the Reformed Church in America.

Then there is Ian Bradley's The Book of Hymns , a collection of 150 mostly British, entirely Euro-American (if one counts mediæval Greek and Latin hymns as Euro) hymns, each presented in poetic formata with copious annotations. 2000 edition of a book first published in 1989.

Lastly, and for me probably most interestingly, there's a words-only Scottish Believers Hymn Book , published in 2008 by John Ritchie Ltd in Kilmarnock. Although there's some Watts and a little Wesley in it, a huge proportion of its 400-odd hymns are ones I've never seen before by authors I've never heard of before. Although there's no music, tunes are suggested for most, perhaps all, of the hymns. It has four indexes: Topical (no First Advent or Nativity), Leading Phrases, First Lines of First Stanzas, First Lines of Other Stanzas, and Authors. I don't know if the unusual repertoire is due to some sectarian bias ("Believers" somehow smacks of Plymouth Brethren or something) or editorial whimsy or what. The utter absence of Christmas material is odd. To give you an idea of the unusualness of the song list, here are the first dozen first lines from the index (author's last name, according to the index, in parentheses):

  • 7 A debtor to mercy alone (Toplady)
  • 14 A little while our Lord shall come (Deck*)
  • 3 A mind at perfect peace with God (Bonar)
  • 11 A Pilgrim through this lonely world (Denny*)
  • 9 A rock that stands forever (Gerhardt)
  • 2 Abba Father we adore Thee (Hawker [or Hawkes?*?])
  • 1 Abba Father we approach Thee (Deck)
  • 362 Abide in me, my Saviour (Costello)
  • 5 According to Thy gracious Word (Montgomery)
  • 6 Alas and did my Saviour bleed (Watts)
  • 361 All hail the power of Jesus' Name (Peronnet)
  • 364 All the way my Saviour leads me (Crosby)
I completely misunderstood the index of authors, and accused it of being garbled. It was my interpretation that garbled it. Above is the corrected, and I think probably mostly correct, list of authors.

Do the Plymouth Brethren deprecate Christmas? I associate that with JWs, but I see no evidence this is a JW book, though the format is slightly reminiscent of their hymnals. Deck and Denny were Plymouth Brethren. Hawker or Hawkes appears to have been an Anglican convert to Roman Catholicism, hence an unlikely place for the Plymouth Brethren to have found an obscure hymn. However, he was apparently (at least Hawker was) born, and died and was buried, in Plymouth. I found the following other song of his (mentioned by Julian) in an 1857 Baptist hymnal, and am trying to figure out how to fit the LMD text into the 6-line tune prescribed. Image E. Costello appears to be completely unknown except for his authorship of this one hymn, "Abide in me, my Saviour", which is found in several hymnals, not all of any particular denomination.

I find Believers Hymn Book interesting enough that I went ahead and ordered a copy of the music edition from the publisher in Scotland, not having been able to locate it for sale in the US.

You are probably right about the Brethren connection. According to Wikipedia, "The Scottish publisher John Ritchie Ltd. publishes material from authors connected with Gospel Halls" and that the Gospel Hall Assemblies "are a conservative strand of the Open Brethren movement."

I'm confused by the LMD comment, since I don't see any LMD hymn on the page pictured. Thanks.

Don't know how they resolve it, but I would sing two lines to the heavy phrase bar in the upper brace, go back to the beginning and sing two lines, and then finish up the last four lines with the repeat as already incorporated in the song.

So, A B A B C D C D, so to speak? That would work, and would probably be the default solution, but I wish they had made it explicit, as they did with the two different-length texts for the tune on p. 427.

We never used New Songs of Inspiration in church, but sang around the piano as a family many times from one of the older editions. That pretty went away after my older sister (the pianist) passed away, but lots of good memories there.

American Baptist Hymnal / All-American Church Hymnal

Postby Haruo » Mon Aug 19, 2019 10:54 pm

Anybody (Robert Vaughn?) know the relationship between the All-American Church Hymnal, 1957, and the American Baptist Hymnal, 1960? After revisiting this review of the former from 2012, I'm wondering if perhaps the ABH1960 is just a private-label reprint of the AACH1957. I'd also like to know if my guess that with the AACH1957 "edition" means "printing" is correct.

I have wondered whether the American Baptist Hymnal had the All-American Church Hymnal as a sort of base document, and revised and particularized from there. But I don't know that. Seems I remember once comparing them and noticing a lot of similarities, but my memory is faulty sometimes. Possibly interesting, the man who was editor-in-chief of the BSSC when they compiled the ABH married a lady from our community, and retired back to the area. Had I thought to ask him when he was living, I would know the answer to your question.

Arrived today. Thanks! What do I owe you?

BTW only one of the three, The New Evangel, is in the Hymnary.org database, which lists over 6,000, mostly American, hymnals and smaller collections. And even for it they were missing a cover scan, which I'm providing now.
NE1911 COVER.jpg


Three other hymnals also came in today, the 1969 Moravian Hymnal, the British 1971 New Catholic Hymnal, and the US Catholic 1996 Ritual Song. Interesting to note that the British one has everything pretty much in four-part harmony, whereas the 25-years-later-across-the-water one has absolutely everything in unison. Chris?

Since I've benefited from learning a thing or two from the thread above (Believe it or not I was searching the web without success the other day to find out if Hymns of Grace (Second Edition) was a round or shaped book before just happening upon the answer and a bunch more here), I thought I'd jump on with some information from my own collection. I've been focusing mainly on collecting seven-shape hymnals recently, so for now I'll just list the Aikin stuff in my own collection and my girlfriend's. Sometime when it isn't past midnight, I hope to follow up with some remarks on the nature and content of some of the less common books for the benefit of anyone wondering whether they're worth having. I've listed reprints under their original date and later editions under later dates.

Welcome! Good to have you here, and that's a very interesting list!

I'm a bit surprised you don't have the 2010 edition of Christian Harmony. I don't know of any churches that use it as a pew hymnal, but it's a great thing to sing out of anyway! (Wikipedia article)

I believe the entire contents (including page scans, robotic sound clips, and links where available to YouTubes, is up at the Sacred Harp Bremen website, here: https://sevenshapes.sacredharpbremen.org/songs/

I don't see any Harmonia Sacra either. There's an online version in, I think, both 7- and 4-shape notation (your choice). This is the book that was originally the 4-shape Funk's Genuine Church Music, later turned 7-shape and renamed. Yep, here; I haven't checked whether the 7 shapes are Aikin or Funk.

At the last Sacred Harp sing I was at, I purchased several books including the Walker-shape facsimile of the Christian Harmony. At the time, I didn't feel like I could justify getting the 2010 Aikin-shape edition as well, but I may remedy that at some point.

I mailed in an order for the 26th (end-opener) edition of the Harmonia Sacra, but they've sold out on current copies and not yet had it reprinted, so a few days ago I ordered the legacy edition (portrait) as well, which has not yet arrived in the mail.

I did get one more in the mail today, though:

1964 Christian Praise

This is a Broadman Press (Southern Baptist) pew hymnal, and the preface doesn't provide any context for why they produced it midway between the first two editions of The Baptist Hymnal.

My family sings out of the Dennison book at home, but the nearest convention is Texas Southwest, which uses the Cooper book. Their fall session was my first all-day singing in many years, but I definitely want to go back. My girlfriend attends the Harmony Hill Singing School every year, so I plan to be there in 2021. They use their own Primitive Baptist Hymnal (2004) and also the Dennison book Sacred Harp. l will also be looking for fifth-Sunday Southern Gospel singings.

(As an aside, I've been really appreciating the 2004 Primitive Baptist Hymnal for it's combination of lots of verses, shaped notes, and lots of tunes from the Sacred Harp tradition.)

Denson, not Dennison, I'm guessing you mean. There's a huge amount of material in common between Denson and Cooper books, but each also has a bunch of good stuff of its own, and from all I hear even when they have the same tune at the same page a lot of the time they have different alto parts, and a lot of the time the altos prefer the Cooper.

Yes, Denson. I keep saying that name wrong.

The 2004 Primitive Baptist Hymnal can be ordered directly from the singing school.
https://harmonyhillsingingschool.org/pbh/order/

Hymnals do seem to be one atypical category of book that are regularly not available on Amazon for anywhere close to as little as the publisher itself charges.

And now for commentary on some of the hymnals, particularly ones that do not yet have full indexes in Hymnary:

Pentecostal Praises, Pentecostal Publishing House, Hazelwood, MO, 1947
Still in print! 342 hymns, mostly Gospel Hymns and Southern Gospel. Index of titles only and a partial topical index. Copyright assigned to current publisher in 1950. Original publisher not listed.

Songs and Hymns Divine, S. N. Greene, Oklahoma City 6, Oklahoma, 1947
220 + 2 hymns, largely Southern Gospel. Unusual for being published in Oklahoma, which seems as a state to be mostly a consumer rather than a producer of Southern Gospel. Greene had Stamps-Baxter, which owned a lot of the songs anyway, print the book for him. The hymnal is unique in having TWO different hymn number 159s, as the original number has not been removed from whatever plate is reproduced on the inside front cover!

Christian Hymns Number Two, Gospel Advocate Co., Nashville, TN, 1948
452+1 hymns, mostly Gospel Hymns. This is Church of Christ hymnal edited by L. O. Sanderson. Some background on it can be found on a Church of Christ blog, but it hasn't been entered into Hymnary.org yet. Church of Christ hymnals, unlike those I have seen from any other denomination, almost universally include a silk bookmark of the kind found in many bibles, and I can see from this volume that they've been doing that for a long time.

Our Favorite Songs, Jubillee Publications, Nashville, TN, 1956
Paperback. Not dated inside. 182 hymns, mostly Southern Gospel, and some pictures of quartet groups. This was associated with the Gospel Singing Jubilee TV program.

Christian Songs and Choice Hymns, Stamps Quartet Music Company Inc., Dallas, TX, 1957
Paperback. 269 hymns, classics and Southern Gospel.

Free Will Baptist Hymn Book, National Association of Free Will Baptists, Nashville, TN, 1964
General Baptist Hymn Book, General Baptist Education and Publications Inc., Poplar Bluff, MO, 1965
415 hymns + responsive readings. These two books are virtually identical except for the church covenants and the "General Baptist" version referring to foot washing circuitously as "fellowship in condescension" in the topical index. I recall reading that the denomination joined the hymnal project the corporation had already started. The mix of Gospel Hymns and older classics here has a lot of overlap with Southern Baptist hymnals.

All Time Favorite Hymns, Jimmie Davis Music Co. Inc., Shreveport, LA, 1965
Paperback. 240 + 1 hymns + readings. This hymnal is unique in having TWO separate paperback covers, one inside the other. The outer cover is maroon paper with a faux-leather pattern and the title. The inner cover is glossy card-stock with a picture of a shockingly Anglo-Saxon looking Jesus rescuing a lost lamb above the title. I'm assuming the author is the same Jimmie Davis that recorded "You are my sunshine" and served as the pro-segregation (eew!!!!) governor of Louisiana just a year before this book was published.

The Great Christian Hymnal: Number Two, Brotherhood Press, Abilene, TX, 1965
480 + 1 hymns + a few unnumbered chants. Mainly gospel hymns. I'm in the process of creating a pages spreadsheet of this to go on Hymnary.org. The editor Tillit S. Teddlie was a major Church of Christ hymn writer and includes a lot of his own hymns in here. He wrote one of his most re-printed early hymns while pastoring a church in the same little town where I went to college, so there's some local interest behind me wanting to take the time to fully index this.
