This second collection of hymn and psalms from Winchester offers a number of familiar and well-loved hymns alongside others which are only now beginning to become established in our repertoire and affections.
Interspersed with these hymns are some of the psalms which form such an important part of our daily worship at Winchester. The preface to Sing His Glory (Canterbury Press, Norwich, 1997) affirms that many people absorb their theology from, and are nurtured in the faith by, the words they sing and the tunes to which they sing those words.
This is certainly our experience at Winchester.Winchester Cathedral lies in the heart of the ancient capital of England. Founded during the reign of William the Conqueror, its dedication took place in 1093. The Cathedral continues the Opus Dei of the Benedictine monks, with services of Holy Communion, Mattins and Evensong held every day.
The Winchester Cathedral Choir has become world-famous through its concerts and recitals, recordings, television and radio broadcasts.
