New Catholic Hymnal - Faber

This Roman Catholic hymn-book from England was compiled and edited by Anthony Petti (AGP) and Geoffrey Laycock (GL). 

It was published by Faber Music Ltd of London, England, and first released in 1971.

The book has a NIHIL OBSTAT from Dionysius Brophy, Censor Deputatus, and IMPRIMATUR Carolus Grant MA, LCL, Ep Northantoniensis. These are dated (DATUM) Dominica Pasche in Resurrectione Domini, 1971, Northantoniae.

The cover shows a bronze crucifix designed by Germaine Richier and photographed by Robert Descharnes. The cover design was done by Shirley Tucker,

The book was printed in Great Britain by Halstan & Co Ltd., and the ISBN 0 571 10027 9   (paperback edition).

It includes:
  • A foreword by Cardinal Neenan, Archbishop of Westminster, dated 30 March 1971
  • A substantial introduction by Petti and Laycock, which outlines the historical context regarding Catholic use of English-language hymns, gives the objectives of the hymn book, discusses the editorial approach which was followed for both selecting materials and for displaying text and music
  • Acknowledgements

  • Indices (indexes) for each of:
    • Authors, translators and verse sources
    • Composers, arrangers and sources,
    • Tunes by meter
    • Tunes by tune-name
    • Original first lines of translated hymns
    • Suggested uses
    • First lines

The book contains 288 hymns, in 305 different arrangements.   One (Adeste Fideles) is in Latin, while the rest of are in English.   Over seventy are new texts or translations, and over 50 are set to new tunes - many of these new items were produced or commissioned specifically for the book.

The hymns are grouped into a main section (sorted alphabetically by first line of the text, a set of rounds, and an appendix of hymns which are used only on very specific occasions (eg national anthems and hymns about the patron saints in the book's target market), or which are
"firmly embedded in local Catholic traditions [but] which in the opinion of the Editors and many they consulted are swiftly passing out of use as taste changes"
The editors consulted the earliest available sources of music scores, to avoid "perpetuation of doubtful versions".   All hymns are printed with the crotchet as the standard pulse, but time-signatures, tempo-indications and expression marks are only given when a living composer or arranger has indicated them. 

The book is still in-print, and copies are usually available ether directly from Faber, or via Amazon or other book-stores.
