Hymns Ancient and Modern

   Extremely influential hymnal resulting from the Oxford movement, compiled by more that 200 Anglican clergy, and first published in 1861. The hymnal brings together excellent examples of the major Christian hymn traditions: Latin plainsongs, German chorales, and contemporary Victorian hymns. Outselling all rivals, its music was adopted by Welsh Methodists, Scottish Presbyterians, and American Lutherans, and finally by English and American Catholic hymnals of the last half century.
