"This book I recommend without reservation, especially to anyone interested in the corporate song of the Church. From beginning to end each essay, complete in its content was of a comfortable legth making it a joy to anticipate the reading the one that followed! The collection of essays opens with a deeply personal and theologically profound foreword by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams. Although it is easy to pass over these introductory statements, this one is an absolute must for anyone reading the book and sets the standard for the breadth and depth of writing of the twenty-one essays that follow. (...)It would be very easy to list the many essays that are oustanding because of the comprhensiveness of their content and the quality of the writing(...) Strengthen for Service is a book I recommend without reservation. Reading it will be engaging, enlightening and inspirational!" Raymond f.Glover, The Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians, Richmond, Virginia, July/August 2006.
"Here is a commemorative volume which congregations and clergy, musicians and hymn-writer will want to have on their shelves - a volume that tells the story of one of the great landmarks in the history of worship in the Church of England, the influence of which is still very much with us today." Michael Tavinor, CMQ, March 2006.
