The hymn selection included consideration for seasonal variety, long-standing use (25 years or more), and familiar melodies. The one great drawback of this book is that there is no musical notation included, even a melody line. As I've discovered many of my retirement centre parishioners know enough music to follow the melody lines (if not more parts as well), this is a disadvantage to the book. Another minor quibble would be that there is no table of contents -- there is an Index of First Lines at the back, but this is less helpful.
The hymn numbers correspond to the numbers in the regular Hymnal 1982; hence, the first hymn is no. 8, 'Morning Has Broken'. Ecumenical standards such as 'Amazing Grace' and more Episcopal hymns such as 'The God of Abraham Praise' are included; other hymns include 'Abide With Me', 'O God, Our Help in Ages Past', 'We Gather Together', 'Rock of Ages', 'Faith of Our Fathers', a good collection of Christmas carols, and several patriotic/national songs. This hymnal would easily work in ecumenical and shared-ministry settings.
