 Our Description

The new paperback hymnal from Noel Jones, of the Church Music Association of America, features hymns focusing on the Holy Eucharist.

Between 1850 and the present time the practice of writing hymns has continued without interruption. This selection of hymns focusing upon the Eucharist includes some of the most familiar examples. The common practice of hymnal publishers was to take a popular text and hire a composer to write a new tune for it so they could publish their own versions. For that reason you'll find more than one version of certain hymns in this volume. Some texts had even more settings than are included here.

In some cases that we have noted harmonizations have been added to hymns that were originally offered only in melody versions of two-part settings, common because men and women did not sing together in choirs until the late 1950's.

The Catholic Hymnal is intended to be a resource collection of Catholic Hymns. This volume is extracted from the working files for the book to provide eucharistic hymns for today's singers.

This item received 4 stars overall. A much-needed supplement for your parish hymnal

This is an interesting collection of hymns.  I picked up Eucharistic Hymns: The Catholic Hymnal because I was tired of 1960's Communion hymns and I couldn't bear the thought of making my cantor sing "Soul of my Savior" one more time.  This hymnal has 61 traditional Eucharistic hymns in standard notation.

I like this collection because it infuses some much-needed variety into the OCP Breaking Bread songs.  It has hymns by Gounod and Fr. Faber that I had never heard before and there's one in there by St. Alphonsus Liguori.  In fact, I was only familiar with a couple melodies in the entire collection.  This hymnal is good for feasts like Corpus Christi because it includes some opening and closing songs with a Eucharistic theme that are not meditative enough the Communion.

There are a few things about this hymnal that are a little peculiar.  Before I could use it I had to take it to a print shop to get it spi Full Review...
