This book indexes the Pilgrim Hymnal published by Pilgrim Press in 1958 for Congregational churches, one of the earliest American denominations. Functioning for the hymnal as a Bible concordance does for the Bible, it provides information on the entire text of the hymns and responses. The preface explains purpose and usage. An index compares hymn numbers with the Evangelical and Reformed Hymnal. A write-in index enables adaptation to other hymnals. Hymn titles can be identified without turning to the hymnal because of the numerical index provided.
...a careful accounting...It was a pleasurable experience...to be reminded once again of the richness of the language of hymn poetry. The Hymn This concordance is useful for selecting hymns, identifying theological themes in hymns, finding phrases, and enlarging concepts of words as they are used in hymns. It is recommended for clergy, church musicians, and any libraries with holdings in church music or church history. American Reference Books Annual
