4.0 out of 5 stars Wide general collection with easily legible scores, 24 Oct 2009
By 
G. T. Heriz Smith "Hedgehog" (Devon, England) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: One Church, One Faith, One Lord: Full Music: Hymns Old and New (Hymns Old & New) (Hardcover)
There are so many hymn books out there on top of the range published by Kevin Mayhew that choosing any one of them is quite a task. The CoE group I worship in mostly uses in its various churches either this Hymns Old & New 'One Church, one faith, one Lord' edition (known as the 'red book') or the smaller 'New Anglican' edition (green book) as well as occasionally calling on A&M and a few others. The problem therefore was to try choose one that would just about cover both Mayhew books, but they say there's very little overlap between their editions. One really does not want to have to carry around two similar and fairly bulky compendiums. In the end I went for this book as it has more hymns and on inspection seemed to include most of the ones we sing from the 'New Anglican' although of course the numbering between the two is different!

What Kevin Mayhew could helfully do is to publish a grid comparing the contents of all their books. The paper by the way is bible thin so watch out if you use post-its and it wouldn't handle much annotating.

What would be really clever of the publishers and would provide a big added value would be to have a website where bona fide purchasers could download simple wordless midi, avi or mp3 files accentuating each SATB part. This would probably be a more effortless way to learn harmonies than the usual problem of trying to read a reasonably clear score on one page and squinting at small typeface words on the other.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wide range of hymns to suit most congregations, 25 July 2014
This review is from: One Church, One Faith, One Lord: Full Music: Hymns Old and New (Hymns Old & New) (Hardcover)
I recently started playing at a church which uses this hymn book. This was one hymn book missing from my extensive collection and I wanted one to be able to look through at home. Despite their being many (and newer) hymn books available, with much duplication between them, this one has a wide range of hymns sufficient to satisfy all but the most demanding congregation, and there are quite a few hidden gems in it which deserve to be better known.

The book is quite large (to be expected given the number of hymns in it) but the print is also large making it easy to use on the organ music desk without causing the organist eye-strain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Widely used choir hymnal, 14 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: One Church, One Faith, One Lord: Full Music: Hymns Old and New (Hymns Old & New) (Hardcover)
Ordered all Amazon had in stock as replacement for time worn items used by my active Church Choir. I was not part of the original discussion leading to the adoption of this hymnal but it has proved very popular in practice, I know of no better hymnal for a modern Church Choir

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: One Church, One Faith, One Lord: Full Music: Hymns Old and New (Hymns Old & New) (Hardcover)
My niece and nephew have recently moved away from London and have joined our local Church choir so I bought them one each so that they would have their own personal copy. A good purchase despite the longer delivery period than expected.
