Holy Ghost Hymnal

The original edition of this hymnal was compiled by Fr John Kearney CssP (1865-1941). A 2nd edition, containing two parts, was complied by Reverend Joseph Corless, CSSp, and published by the Holy Ghost Fathers of Blackrock College in Dublin, Ireland in 1954. The details below are based on this 2nd edition.

The book has an Imprimatur from Julius Lecouvet, Vicar General of Tornaci in Belguim, and was printed by Desclée and Co of Tournai, Belguim

It has no ISBN number, and is long since out of print. There are copies in some Dublin libraries, but I have not seen any 2nd hand copies for sale.

The Dewy Classification is 783.9 /S

It includes a full musical score for 13 Masses, 58 Latin hymns / prayers, and 46 general hymns: 38 in English and 8 in Irish.

Note:  a full-page scanned version of the first edition Part 1 (chant notation) is available here.
