Celebration Hymnal for Everyone

This hymnal by McCrimmon Publications was first published in 1994.

The 1994 edition was available in people (words and limited melody lines), large print, full music and melody/guitar editions.   It has 873 individual titles:  a few in Latin and the rest in English.  This includes various Roman Catholic Mass (service music) and Office (Morning, Evening and Night Prayer) settings as well as a wide range of traditional and modern hymns.

Edited by Patrick Geary, and revised by Jane Porter and Joan McCrimmon.  The cover was designed by Nick Snode, and the book was printed by The Bath Press.

The listing given here is based on the People's Edition, ISBN 0 85597 534 2.   This includes score (melody line, sometimes chords or SATB parts) for only a limited number of items - mainly the service music, psalm and Mass settings.   For the rest, only lyrics are given.

McCrimmons have produced subsequent editions that extend the numbering scheme started in this book.

This book is not at all related to the Celebration Hymnal published by Integrity / Word Music - the latter is a totally different book, produced in America for churches that use "worship" rather then "liturgical" music.
