Endorsement from American Society of Church History

“The new Canterbury Dictionary of Hymnology is a tremendous resource for scholars just at a time when the hymns are being studied afresh by literary critics, historians, theologians, musicologists, and others. Many of us still use the old standard Julian’s Dictionary of Hymnology, a massive brick of a book. This is Julian for a new generation. But it is more. The ability to search across the whole index, like a Google search, provides all sorts of connections and cross-references that Julian never could. The articles are well written and accessible to both the scholar and the church musician alike. This webpage should be bookmarked by worship leaders and all those who simply want to deepen their enjoyment and understanding of the hymns they love.”
