20th Century Folk Hymnal - Volume 1

Published in 1974 by McCrimmond-Mayhew, and edited by Kevin Mayhew, this title became known as "the little red book".

It was perhaps the first UK-produced song book to match the more informal style of liturgical music that was opened to the Catholic church following Vatican II.  All hymns are in lead-sheet (ie melody-line + guitar chords) format, and there are a small number of Mass-parts (ICEL-1973) are included. In total 104 songs are included, all in English.

The book is out of print, although some hymns from it are repeated in later publications from Kevin Mayhew Ltd.   Second-hand copies are often  available on Amazon  (USA, UK / Irelandrest of the world).


About the contents listing:


The following table lists all songs and hymns in the book based on the 1974 edition.  It also shows the first line, author, composer, song number and copyright information in accordance with the site's copyright policies.

The original book did not have song-titles, so titles shown are based on either later publication of the same song, or on the lyrics.  Please report any errors using the comments form below.

Information pages for some songs are linked from the titles.  They usually include background information about the hymn, the full lyrics, downloadable PowerPoint slides of the words, sheet music (lead-sheet and/or guitar chords only), and samples of the song.  Additional song-pages will be added as time and copyright permissions allow.
