In this collection, sung with passion, and recorded by some of Britain's very best choirs, a wide list of favourite hymns is represented. As any churchgoer will testify, there are hundreds of hymns sung regularly from the standard books, often particularly applicable to times of the religious calendar, and we feature a couple of dozen of them here, based on measured popularity above all. True, the collection, first issued at Easter-time, opens with "There is a green hill far-away", and equally true, it closes suitably with both "The day Thou gavest, Lord, is ended", and all-time favourite "Abide with me", but beyond that its order reflects no parrticular time of year or life.
