Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual Songs is a unique & exhaustive hymnal. Includes nearly 1,000 songs, each with scripture references. This version of the hymnal uses 'shape notes', which are a series of eight shapes that correspond to the eight note names in solfege. The publisher also has a youtube channel available to aid in learning unfamiliar melodies: youtube.com/melodypublications.
Unique: Includes scripture references, historical sketches on hundreds of favorite lines, an exhaustive record of the lyric and tune origins and a format focused on congregational song
Singable: Great for congregational and family use. The keys selected are deliberately targeted for accessibility by both male and female voices. Styling and formatting have also focused on clarity of lyrics and vocal part reading, along with notations and dynamics that aid congregational song.
Accurate: Using modern technologies and old-fashioned legwork, the editorial team has taken great pains to ensure the attribution of authorship, origins and original lines are authentic. From the libraries of London to the archives of churches gone by, the smallest details have been validated. The result is a book with pristine lyrics as the author intended, returning mangled and forgotten lines to the hands of the redeemed.
Biblical: With more than 16,000 scripture references from all 66 books of the Bible, the song selections are cross-referenced to nearly any biblical sermon or theme. In addition, a supreme focus has been made to ensure the lyrics are doctrinally sound and definitively biblical.
Logical: Genesis opens with "In the beginning, God...." Appropriately, the hymnal opens with "O Worship the King!" as it introduces the topic of God. Topics then proceed chronologically through the godhead, creation, the birth of Christ, the gospel, the church, Christian living and more. It pinnacles in parallel with Revelation with praise in Heaven. Songs have been placed in their appropriate timeline and both young and mature Christian alike will find encouragement and learning as they proceed through the selection.
Exhaustive: With nearly 1,000 songs, Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual Songs is a vast collection of hymnody. It covers more than twelve centuries of past labours and reaches across topics that are omitted from nearly every modern publication. These works transcend numerous peoples and languages and have been handed down for centuries to our present day.
Shape Notes: This version of the hymnal uses 'shape notes', which are a series of eight shapes that correspond to the eight note names in solfege. For example, 'do' is a triangle, 're' a half-circle, and so on. The intention is to make it visually easier to learn a new song or harmony.
