The Veritas Hymnal

This Irish hymnal was commissioned by the National Commission for Sacred Music in 1972. It was approved by the Irish Church Music Association, and the congregational edition was first published in 1973. An organ edition was published in 1975. 

The books is still in print and available from Veritas today. Second-hand copies may also be available from Amazon (UK) or (less frequently) USA


The original version, which the listing below is based on, had 146 hymns:  101 in English, 41 in Irish, 1 in Latin and 2 in a mixture of Latin and English.   Later editions omitted one of the English-language hymns.

The editor was Fr Jerry Threadgold, and he credits assistance from Gerard Gillen, Tadgh Ó Sé, Sister Odran Doyle, and Fr Donal Murray.

The organ edition has
  • A preface by William Cardinal Conway, Archbishop of Armagh, Primate of All Ireland
  • Nihil Obstat: John Whelan, CC, Censo Deputatus
  • Imprimi Potest: Bishop Dermot Ryan, Archbishop of Dublin, 22 Sept 1973


The ISBN of the organ edition is 0 901810 93 2.

The book was designed by Liam Miller, set by Van Gameren, Ede, Holland, printed in Ireland by Martin McLoughlin and bound by John F Newman Ltd of Dublin.
