Synopses & Reviews
This classic work of hymnody from 1863 draws together a rich selection of German chorales with their tunes, translated by Catherine Winkworth, and edited by William Sterndale Bennett and Otto Goldschmidt. They were arranged for use in the Church of England, and grouped into subjects such The Church and its Seasons and Services, aspects of Christian Life and Special Occasions. Although some of the contents are still in common use today, it is primarily a rich sourcebook for many beautiful forgotten hymns of the Lutheran tradition. This handsome new edition from Benediction Classics uses high-quality scans for the music only, all the text has been carefully typeset using a modern font for ease of reading.
