The world's most famous hymn book has undergone a complete revision and now offers the broadest ever range of traditional hymns and the best from today's composers and hymn/song writers. 150 years since its first publication and after sales of 170 million copies, this brand new edition contains over 840 items, ranging from the Psalms to John Bell, Bernadette Farrell and Stuart Townend.
The guiding principles behind this collection are:
- congregational singability
- biblical and theological richness
- musical excellence
- liturgical versatility
- relevance to today's worship styles and to today's concerns
New features include added provision for all the seasons of the Church year, new items for carol services and other popular occasions where the repertoire is in need of refreshing, more choices for all-age worship, fresh translations of some ancient hymnody, beautiful new tunes, short songs and chants - alleluias, kyries, blessings etc. and music from the world church. This new edition includes 400 items not in the last revision of the hymn book in 2000.
A full range of indexes (including biblical and thematic) and a helpful guide to choosing hymns for every occasion will help to make Ancient & Modern the premier hymn collection of choice. This is the Words edition.

'It is my prediction that for those congregations who seek to keep pace with contemporary developments in hymn-writing ... this new hymnal will quickly become the standard by which all others are judged.' New Directions 20130501 'if Common Worship was graded as 'Good' in 2000, this 2013 edition of A&M will certainly be a grade higher. It is a volume which deserves to be in regular use by all church musicians and worship leaders.' -- Ian Sharp Church Music Quarterly 20130901
