The New Century Hymnal on CD
The New Century Hymnal brought to life on a 35 CD collection! Designed for congregational worship and personal devotion, this all-pipe organ (no singing) resource is now available. The collection features every hymn in The New Century Hymnal, along with a musical introduction to each hymn.
(For verses in other languages, congregations are encouraged to substitute another language for an English verse. Verses equivalent to the number of English verses for each hymn are provided. Select hymns contain an accompaniment for an additional language verse.)
