111 worship songs from around the world, including hymns from Africa, South and North America, Asia and the Pacific, and Europe. It presents a truly global range of material suitable for music leaders in churches of all denominations and in all countries. Most of the hymns have singing translations in several languages, with English, German, French, and Spanish usually provided alongside the original language. There are songs in unison, two- and four-part harmony, and call and response items. Simple keyboard accompaniments are given, with guitar chords added where relevant.
Song books for specific conferences can be limited in their usefulness for other occasions. This comprehensive collection, however, will be a valuable asset to those planning mission gatherings, One World Week services and Sing World events, and there are many beautiful songs and chants that should find their way into more regular usage (with the help of a useful liturgical index). Geoff Weaver, Church Music Quarterly Sept 05 For worshippers from most traditions a few songs will be familiar; but most will not be, and this excellent resource, working out at less than 14 pence per song (and with copying arrangements subject to the Christian Copyright Licensing Scheme) should encourage all congregations to develop and widen their worship style. A very useful collection, well presented, with excellent printing and layout. Alan Bullard, Choir and Organ Sept 03
