Notes & Reviews:
The origins of the hymn go back to the early days of the Christian Church, when rhythmical prose was being compose by writers such as Saint Ambrose (c.340-c.397), who is credits with one of the first hymns, the 'Te Deum'. Many years later such churchmen as George Wither, George Herbert, John Milton, and John Bunyan contributed toward the hymn's development in English. And this just begins the story of the English Hymnal. This volume, as with the others, includes an authoritative booklet on the complete history of this remarkable collection of music.
