Songs of God's People:- supplement to the Church Hymnal, 3rd edition

This book was published on behalf of The Panel on Worship, The Church of Scotland, in response to a request from their 1986 General Assembly.   It is intended as a supplement to the third edition of the Church Hymnal (CH3) rather than a stand-alone text.

It contains 121 songs from a wide range of styles and sources, including Gospel songs and songs from various traditions, eg Greek Orthodox, in these languages:
  • English 113
  • Greek 1
  • Latin 3
  • Latin and English 1
  • South African dialect and English 3

It has a foreword by Andrew J Scobie, Convener, Panel on Worship, and a Preface by John L Bell, Convener, Supplement Committee.  Bell also served as music-editor for the project.

The book was published by Oxford University Press in 1988.   There are two editions:   words and music.  The contents listing below is based on the 1995 re-print of the music edition.

There are indices (indexes) of:
  • Authors and translators (page 209)
  • Composers and arrangers (page 210)
  • Tune-name and meter  (page 211) - meter is shown, not indexed
  • Song title and first line (page 213)

The ISBN is 0 19 197802 7.

The book is now out-of-print, but copies are often available on Amazon.
