Once More, with Feeling! : A Book of Classic Hymns Hardback
Edited by Rupert Christiansen
You don't have to go to choral practice or watch "Songs of Praise" to relish the great treasury of English hymns.
Embedded deep in our national consciousness, hymns remain a source of comfort and joy at every occasion of note in our lives: weddings, funerals, prize-giving, even the FA cup final.
This collection has the words of all your favourite hymns and carols, alongside brief introductions and vocal lines for the traditional tunes.
It is a book which will be irresistible to those with fond memories of school assembly, or a lingering affection for hard pews, stained-glass windows, and the resonant majesty of the "King James Bible" - a book for everyone, be they screeching soprano, booming contralto, growling baritone or thunderous bass - in or out of tune - who enjoys the opportunity to lift up their hearts and sing.
