PRAISE TO THE LORD Great Hymns of the Church by the Schola Cantorum ($16.95)

LP: 0-8146-7931-5

Praise to the Lord is a celebration of hymns from all ages of the Church's existence. It combines many popular hymns and some deserving more recognition into a collection that emphasizes praise, thanksgiving, social concern, and Eucharist. Like all recordings by the Schola Cantorum of St. Peter's-in-the-Loop, this collection is an oral and spiritual delight. It models good assembly hymn-leading by organ, choir, and descanting instruments. It also demonstrates how certain hymns can be used as anthems by smaller choirs.
