What is included in Sing Praise?

Sing Praise is a comprehensive worship supplement that will fit many churches' needs for quality modern music resources, arranged seasonally and thematically

The 330 hymns and songs included represent today's most influential writers and styles: Bernadette Farrell, John Bell, Stuart Townend, Michael Forster, Graham Kendrick, Carl Daw, Taizé, Marty Haugen, Timothy Dudley-Smith,  Shirley Erena-Murray, Keith Getty, Martin Leckebusch and many more.

Sing Praise also includes several songs from the world church and other short songs and chants.

Sing Praise aims to bring together new and as yet untested material with recently written songs and hymns already becoming familiar but not included in most standard hymn books. There are many new hymn texts paired with well-known tunes, making them easy to incorporate into services, while a few older texts appear with freshly composed settings. Some strong new tunes have been found to match imaginative words. Choirs will find plenty for them to enjoy singing, as will churches with less traditional musical ensembles, but the needs of congregations with very limited resources have not been ignored.
