Lambeth Praise is the title of a hymnbook produced for the Lambeth Conference of 1998. The Lambeth Conference is a meeting every ten years of all the bishops in the world-wide Anglican Communion, normally held in the eighth year of each decade. Originally it was held in London, where Lambeth Palace is the seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury, but now it is held at Canterbury.
The book was compiled by Geoff Weaver*, the Director of Music for the 1998 Conference. It contained 296 hymns, divided into five sections:
Classical Hymnody (1-96);
Contemporary Hymnody (97-166);
World Church Songs (167-222);
Chants and Responses (223-268);
Worship Songs (269-296).
