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.
