New Catholic Hymnal
New Catholic Hymnal, Faber 1971

Edited by Anthony Petti and Geoffrey Laycock.

The book contained 283 hymns, arranged in alphabetical order of first lines; 13 rounds, mainly in three parts, and all but four with words written or arranged by Anthony Petti; and an Appendix of 9 hymns consisting either of hymns suitable as National Anthems or hymns which, in the opinion of the Editors and their consultants, were currently popular but had a short life-expectancy. The selection of hymns covers a wide range; many of the `traditional' hymns were extensively altered by the editor, whose intervention was always acknowledged in the ascription of the hymn.

To view the editorial Introduction, click here . . .

An extended review by Erik Routley, characteristically enthusiastic and equally characteristically laced with robust criticism, appeared in the Bulletin of the Hymn Society of GB & I, No.122 November 1971.

New Orbit
New Orbit, Galliard 1972

General Editor: Peter D.Smith; Music Editor: June B.Boyce

A collection of 99 songs and hymns for use in Christian Education and with children's groups. Most have an optional instrumental accompaniment (for pitched or percussion instruments) in addition to a keyboard part. The choice of words and music was made by the General Editor, with the help of an advisory committee chaired by Bernard Braley.

The general preface indicates that this was the second of three books, the first being New Life - a collection for older children in Middle and Secondary Schools - and the third, only projected at the time of the publication of New Orbit, intended for younger children (? possibly New Horizons, ed. Bernard Braley and June Boyce).

New Songs
New Songs, The Congregational Church, Redhill, Surrey 1962

A collection of 32 hymns and 20 tunes, prepared by members of Redhill Congregational Church (principally by the organist, Bernard Massey, whose involvement is not specifically acknowledged in the booklet). It was published in a typed and duplicated format, as part of a fund-raising process for the Centenary Fund of the church.

A prefaced Note states:

"None of the items in this book (except tune 910 [i.e. J.G.Schicht's Manna - see RS-68] ) has previously appeared in any major hymnal. Most, in fact, are here published for the first time. The book will thus supplement any of the hymnals in current use. For simplicity, however, the references to hymns and tunes are only to Congregational Praise, 1951.

The numbering here begins at 901 in order to avoid confusion as far as possible with numbers in the main hymnal in use."

Some of the hymns and tunes were derived from a typewritten duplicated collection in use in the Chapel of Mansfield College Oxford during the period 1940-60. (That collection survives; but its contents have been extended or altered in subsequent years.)

For hymns and tunes in New Songs which appear in RS, see notes as follows:

RS-563 Chichester
RS-318 Not far beyond the sea, nor high
( set in New Songs to: )
RS-68 Manna
RS-319 Thanks to God whose word was spoken

Nicolai, P.: Frewden Spiegel
Philip Nicolai: Frewden-Spiegel dess ewigen Lebens, Frankfurt-am-Main, 1599

A devotional treatise, with an Appendix containing several hymns including the two referenced below. Part of the Preface (which was dated 10th August 1598) is quoted by Julian (p.805b) as follows:

There seemed to me nothing more sweet, delightful and agreeable, than the contemplation of the noble, sublime doctrine of Eternal Life obtained through the Blood of Christ. This I allowed to dwell in my heart day and night, and searched the Scriptures as to what they revealed on this matter, read also the sweet treatise of the ancient doctor Saint Augustine [ *1] . . .

Then day by day I wrote out my meditations, found myself, thank God! wonderfully well, comforted in heart, joyful in spirit, and truly content; gave to my manuscript the name and title of a Mirror of Joy, and took this so composed Frewden-Spiegel to leave behind me (if God should call me from this world) as the token of my peaceful, joyful, Christian departure, or (if God should spare me in health) to comfort other sufferers whom He should also visit with the pestilence. . . .

Now has the gracious, holy God most mercifully preserved me amid the dying from the dreadful pestilence, and wonderfully spared me beyond all my thoughts and hopes, so that with the prophet David I can say to Him "O how great is Thy goodness, which Thou hast laid up for them that fear Thee, " . . .
