American Catholic Hymnbook: The Johannine Hymnal, Accompaniment Edition
By Gilligan, Michael
Illustrator Virginia Broderick
This keyboard accompaniment edition of the American Catholic Hymnbook is truly valuable. To save the organist time and trouble, verses of songs are printed within the staves, so there is no looking up and down to find the place. Page-turning is kept to a minimum by reprinting refrains on successive pages. Alternate settings are clearly indicated, to give the musician variety in choice and ease in planning. A full set of indexes, including a metrical index, also is included. Such a metrical index can be a great help in choosing appropriate texts. Overall, large print and clear format make for convenience and easy reading. All songs are in landscape format, so more music fits on each page, saving you the trouble of turning pages.
This accompaniment edition comes in two volumes, to make things easy for your organist or pianist. The first volume provides hymns and metrical Psalms. The second volume provides accompaniment for Mass and other liturgies. Both volumes are in a convenient, loose-leaf format. You can readily remove or add pages, as you wish.
Both volumes are made available as a set, together. Each volume has a rigid, strong cover, so that the book stays flat and upright.
For a condensed edition of this book, with many of the same songs, as well as a similar format, order the Leaflet Missal Keyboard Accompaniment Book. It's also available at a lower price than that of the American Catholic Hymnbook Keyboard Edition.
