Church Music Quarterly (RSCM): Ian Sharp reviews the new Ancient & Modern

"if Common Worship was graded as 'Good' in 2000, this 2013 edition of A&M will certainly be a grade higher. It is a volume which deserves to be in regular use by all church musicians and worship leaders."

Ian Sharp, Chair of the Hymn Society of Great Britain and Ireland


The Times: Satisfying both sides in the worship war

"Ancient & Modern, the latest offering from the most venerable of all hymnal publishers [...] represents a resounding vote of confidence in the durability of the congregational hymn and provides a fascinating indicator of current tastes in Anglican worship."


Church Times: Bring to the Lord a glad new song

"There are nearly 400 items here that are not in Common Praise, and these have been drawn from a variety of contemporary sources and traditions. With a total of 847 items, the volume is a little on the bulky size, but it is a wonderful treasure store, reflecting the truly catholic tastes of today's congregations."

Ronald Corp


New Directions: Book of the month May 2013

"It is my prediction that for those congregations who seek to keep pace with contemporary developments in hymn-writing [...] this new hymnal will quickly become the standard by which all others are judged."

Peter Westfield
