Sing a New Song to the Lord - Mayhew-McCrimmon

This book was edited by Kevin Mayhew (general editor) and Luke Connaughton (literary editor), assisted by liturgical advisor Paulinus Milner OP.

It was published by Mayhew-McCrimmon Ltd of Southend-on-Sea, England.   The first printing was in 1970, and there were subsequent reprints in both October and November 1970 and April 1971.   Printing was done by P J Ralph, also of Southend-on-Sea, Essex.

It has a Nihil Obstat from J D Donnelly Censor, and an Imprimatur from C D Creede, Vicar General.

There is a Foreword by "the editors", which explains the links between the material in the book and the 3-year liturgical calendar adopted by the Roman Catholic church following Vatican II: The contents follow this closely, and lists one or more hymns that are based specifically on the readings from each Sunday.

The book contains 107 hymns, all in English.   A surprising number are by Luke Connaughton himself or by Peter Icarus or John Smith - both of which are now believed to be non-de-plumes for Connaughton.  It is likely that this is due to the lack of English-language material to complement the new lectionary which was available at the time when the book was compiled.

Each hymn/song is accompanied by a short phrase which described the key scriptural themes which it addresses.   There are indexes by first line, week in the liturgical cycle, season / Mass part.    However song-titles are not included, and there is no index of titles separate from the first lines.

There were two editions (peoples and organ) - the listing below is based on the People's Edition, 2001.

The book is now out-of-print, but copies are usually available from Amazon (UK and Ireland).
