Multitude of Voyces' Inclusive Hymn Project

 

  • This new collection will eventually comprise around 40 hymns and hymn music intended for traditional

worship.

 

  • Most hymns will be new, historically unpublished, or published for the first time within living

memory. Contributions will be sought and commissioned from writers and composers of all genders, with the majority of the contributors being women and people of colour. 

 

  • The hymns can be used alongside existing traditional resources for formal worship, to

allow congregations to diversify and expand their inclusive contributions to the sung liturgy.

 

  • The collection will be carefully researched, curated and commissioned to serve as an impactful and

powerful educational tool with which to open up conversations relating to inclusion and diversity
within Anglican and ecumenical worshipping communities.

 

  • The hymns will provide new, interesting, affordable, accessible resources with which parishes will be able to broaden their worship and relate it to some of the soical-justice issues of our times.

 

  • We are very grateful to the Pratt Green Trust and to a private sponsor who have sponsored the research, composition and publication of this new project.  

 

We are delighted to be joined in this project by our new Project Partner, St Wulfrum's Church, Grantham (Lincolnshire, UK). Under the leadership of their Director of Music, Dr. Tim Williams and supported by their former organ scholar, Matilda Johnston, their choirs, clergy and congregation will be supporting the project by recording each hymn. We have been absolutely thrilled to hear how their young singers in particular have been keen to explore the themes. 

 

Digital offprints of sheet-music, words and succinct support materials for use within worship will be published later in the year.
