A quality hardback with 53 recently composed hymn tunes. The majority have been tried in the Metropolitan Tabernacle services, before being adopted into regular worship. Acceptance (or otherwise) by the large, multi-national congregation (rather than an editorial committee) has steered the project.
As Dr Peter Masters comments in his foreword, ‘In my view, these compositions ideally carry the sentiments of strong traditional-genre hymns, and all possess their own distinctive and memorable theme melody. I do not think that there is any other composer of traditional hymn music over the centuries who has contributed so many uniquely original melodies to our corpus of hymn tunes. May this selection be a benefit and blessing to churches worldwide that love reverent worship.’
