A selection of contemporary hymns across the seasons and occasions in church life, set to well known tunes. More
This collection of eighty hymns by New Zealand song-writer Jan Chamberlin is divided into sections for the seasons and occasions in church life. These contemporary hymns are written to make sense for twenty-first century people. There are no Victorian ideas with flowery included adjectives here. As Jan is a lyricist not a composer she suggests one or two familiar tunes that may be used with each hymn. The use of well-known tunes will be especially appreciated in smaller congregations or where there is a shortage of accomplished musicians.
