East Asia Christian Conference

[C] The E.A.C.C.Hymnal, 1963; published by the East Asia Christian Conference.

Dr John Milton Kelly (Music Editor)

Dr Daniel Thambyrajah Niles (General Editor)*

printed by Kawakita Printing Co. Ltd, Kyoto, Japan, 1963 under the supervision of Mr Megumi Hara.

[ * D.T.Niles was at the time the General Secretary of the E.A.C.C. ]

The book consisted of a General Section of Western Hymns in English, most of which were already in common use in Asian churches either in English or in translation; and an Asian Section containing hymns either translated from a vernacular language or specially written to fit melodies of Asian origin. D.T.Niles was responsible for many of these, and 45 of the 100 hymns in the Asian section were written or translated by him.

Ecumenical Praise
Ecumenical Praise, Agape (Hope Publishing Co.) 1977 

Edited by Carlton Young, with an `Editorial Board' of Austin Lovelace, Erik Routley and Alec Wyton. In a (brief) Preface the Editors wrote:

ECUMENICAL PRAISE is a supplemental hymnal designed to serve the growing points of the church. Equally suitable to stand alone in places where experimental worship is planned, or to supplement a denominational hymnal, it could enrich the worship of santuary, campus or convention by injecting into it some of the best in contemporary and classical hymnody. 

Fully catholic in its spread of texts, tunes, poets and composers,the book encourages the use of a creative and innovative approach to the music of the church. Great care has been taken to make this a book for the worshipper prepared to contribute to, and participate in, the church's growth.

(An acknowledgement paragraph followed, without mentioning any individual names.)

A list of `contributors' also appears on the title page, apparently of authors and composers who had submitted work to or been commissioned by the editors. This includes, as author, Fred Kaan; and as composers, Samuel Adler, William Albright, Emma Lou Diemer, Calvin Hampton, Daniel Moe, Carl Schalk and Heinz Werner Zimmerman. Also listed are Sister Theophanie Hyerk, Marilyn Keiser, Robert Mitchell and Lloyd Pfautsch; but none of the items in the book appear to be attributed to any of these.

The book, which contains 117 items, included biblical and hymn texts old and new, with a substantial number of new items in both traditional and frankly experimental forms. Most of the older music settings were given fresh arrangements or harmonizations; and some of the wide range of new music was clearly designed for the `creative and innovative approach' mentioned in the Preface. (Among the latter are some items of considerable technical difficulty, usually for the accompanist(s) but in some cases for the singers also; and may have been intended for the number of North American churches which enjoy a professional or semi-professional `ministry of music'.)

English Hymnal, 1906

The first edition was published in 1906, under the General Editorship of Percy Dearmer, with Vaughan Williams as Musical Editor. Like most Anglican-inspired hymn-books to the present day, it was not an authorised publication of the Church, but an independent venture by the editors and publishers. In its editorial Preface, it was presented as

". . . a collection of the best hymns in the English language, and [ is ] offered as a humble companion to the Book of Common Prayer for use in the Church. It is not a party-book, expressing this or that phase of negation or escess, but an attempt to combine in one volume the worthiest expressions of all that lies within the Christian Creed, from those `ancient Fathers' who were the earliest hymn-writers down to contemporary exponents of modern aspirations and ideals. . . .

English Hymnal (revised) 1933
The English Hymnal (revised edn) O.U.P. / Mowbray, 1933 

The original (1906) editors, Percy Dearmer and Vaughan Williams, were responsible also for the revised edition; but particular acknowledgement was made to Martin Shaw for use of the results of his work on Songs of Praise, in which he had collaborated with Vaughan Williams in the music editing. 

The revision was

` . . . confined to the enrichment of the music. The hymns themselves remain as they were in 1906 except that, during subsequent years, in rare instances a few words have been altered at the request of the authors.' [ Preface to the 1933 edition ]

The `Whole Psalter' - i.e. the complete `Old Version' - with tunes arranged and harmonised by leading contemporary English composers.

This was probably the first psalter to show the harmony in four parts together, with the voice parts printed on opposite pages of a single book rather than in separate books as commonly hitherto; and also the first in which tunes were given names.

The Evangelical Magazine

This religious and theological Magazine was launched in 1793 by agroup of evangelical ministers, mainly Calvinist in sympathy if not in denominational allegiance. One of its expressed intentions was to continue the objects of The Gospel Magazine (q.v), previously edited by A.M.Toplady and others, and by this date discontinued.

Its policy and constitution were described in the Preface to the first issue, July 1793: see the file evangel.mag.

Although James Montgomery was not among the founders (he was only 22 at the time, and had not even yet taken over the editing of the Sheffield Register), he later became an influential contributor. By the 1820's the full title had changed to The Evangelical Magazine and Missionary Chronicle; and it regularly carried verbatim reports of the Public and Directors' Meetings of the London Missionary Society and of the Bible Society, of which Montgomery was a strong supporter.
