Hymns galore

The Canterbury Dictionary of Hymnology, a Web-based resource released in 2013, is the result of 12 years of research by editors in the United Kingdom and Nashville, Tenn. It’s the first attempt in more than a century to replace John Julian’s A Dictionary of Hymnology (first published in 1892). The online dictionary — with more than 300 contributors from 30 countries — includes some 4,000 individual entries on writers, composers, hymns and songs. It also features articles on major figures and movements in worldwide hymnology. For more information, see www.hymnology.co.uk.
