Notes and Editorial Reviews

One of England’s most visited Cathedrals presents a varied selection of 20 popular hymns which would be hard to match. Although hymn-singing has long been an integral part of Christian Worship, the role of hymns has varied greatly throughout the centuries. In modern-day Church services, hymns provide an opportunity for clergy, congregation and choir to join forces and take part simultaneously. More than this, though, hymns are an expression of praise to God in song. One of England’s most visited Cathedrals presents a varied selection of 20 popular hymns which would be hard to match.
