Canterbury Hymns

Below are the hymns being sung each day while in Canterbury.

  • A “bound” PDF of the entire set of hymns can be reviewed online and/or downloaded. You can print it out for practice purposes but hard copies will be distributed in Canterbury.
  • Except for St. Denio (see below) each hymn fits on one page. For hymns with 5 or 6 verses, the first 3 verses appear on the top of the page and the remaining 2 or 3 on the bottom – with the two halves of the hymn separated by a horizontal squiggly line:
  • Verses are numbered just as in our own 1982 Hymnal (the original idea of separating verses by varying fonts proved unwieldy in Sibelius).
  • In the table below the link to the right plays back a 4-part piano MP3 audio file.
  • For hymn St. Denio:
    • Verses 1, 2, and 3 appear on one page and verse 4 (with the melody, descant, and descant harmony) appears on a second page.
    • On the MP3 the 4-part piano is played once followed by the descant (on “ahhh”) and the “Barry Rose” harmony.
  • Hymns are listed in the same order as that of the package sent from Canterbury.

PLEASE REVIEW THESE HYMNS IN ADVANCE. Several are unfamiliar, and even some we know occasionally contain different words and or notes.
