Timothy Dudley-Smith: Hymn Writer
A Mirror to the Soul
THIRTY CONTEMPORARY HYMNS based on psalms, with full music (some new tunes, some familiar).
Psalms gave the Christian community its first hymns. Indeed, the Hebrew name for our Book of Psalms means 'Songs of Praise'. Metrical psalms are not, except in the rarest cases, actual translations of the original; but to congregations used to hymn singing they can offer something of the riches that singing (or sayng) of the psalms provide.
