Who has put it together?

The editors include musicians and liturgists from a variety of backgrounds, bringing different skills and areas of expertise. Among them are the Revd PETER MOGER, the Church of England's National Worship Development Officer, and TIM RUFFER, the RSCM's Head of Publishing. The group was chaired by ANNE HARRISON, who helps to produce the quarterly planner Sunday by Sunday for the RSCM and is also one of the editors of Praxis News of Worship. JOHN BARNARD, composer, organist and choir director, brought his experience as a parish musician and an active member of the Hymn Society of Great Britain and Ireland, while two members of the group are based in cathedrals: MIOHAEL HAMPEL, Sub-Dean and Precentor at St Edmundsbury, and PETER NARDONE, Director of Music at Chelmsford.

The aim of the editors was to produce a resource which would have liturgical and musical integrity, while reflecting some of the widely diverse patterns of worship within today's 'mixed economy' church and taking into account the centrality of mission in recent thinking and writing.

The publishers are Canterbury Press - the book publishing arm of Hymns Ancient and Modern Ltd - one of the world's great hymn book publishers and the Royal School of Church Music.
