Hymns and Songs of Remembrance and Hope compiled by Carlton R. Young
This volume of twenty-five music items will be useful to the living, the dying, and the grieving and will help family members and friends to accept and honor death, in the light of faith, as an inevitable part of the cycle of life. Funeral or resurrection choirs will welcome this largely new repertoire suitable for choir alone or with the congregation.
Compiled by the venerable Carlton (Sam) Young, this edition features a number of his tunes in addition to selections ranging from chant to spirituals. Texts by significant contemporary writers are also included; Delores Dufner, OSB, has written the foreword. An important and useful pastoral resource.
