The supplement contains some 200 hymns, songs and liturgical settings reflecting the best of church music to emerge since the compilation of the most recent edition of the Church Hymnal.
The selection, which is authorised by the General Synod, includes many hymns and songs, plus new settings for the Eucharist, short songs and chants— alleluias, kyries, blessings etc, a number of items in the Irish language, music from the world church and some completely new compositions and arrangements.
Two years in preparation, the selection has been overseen by a team of parish and cathedral musicians and clergy and has been tested in local parishes.
There are two roadshows taking place in Connor Diocese. The first is in St Patrick’s Church, Ballymena on Tuesday June 16 @ 7.30pm and the second in Christ Church Parish, Lisburn, on Tuesday June 23, also at 7.30pm.
