'What Common Praise does well is to marry texts with appropriate tunes,
carrying on the tradition of Hymns Ancient & Modern. In this way, the poetry
of the texts is brought more alive and can better uplift those who participate
in the worship.' Music and Liturgy
'Congregations mainly using traditional material and looking to replace
elderly hymnbooks could find most of their needs met here.' News of
'This definitive collection of hymnody forms truly a kernal of universal
song. It is quite simply for so many reasons, a 'must have'.' Organists
'Ancient & Modern adherents will love Common Praise.' News of
'It is a joy to handle, elegant in its appearance and priced very
competitively. There are riches in abundance for everyone.' The Organ
This review is for the Melody Edition. The fact it is the Melody Edition could do with putting into the product title to distinguish it from other versions of 'Common Praise'.Given that we share the common purpose of hopefully helping congregations sing Hymns as well as possible it is a shame the words are not written along under the music. If this had been done congregations might find it easier to follow and thus perhaps sing better. I appreciate this request would take more effort and therefore cost to produce, however I'd be delighted to pay more for a more useful Hymn book. Perhaps just the words of the fist verse or two could be inserted into the music the next time the book is re-printed?
