"The 1977 Australian Hymn Book contained mainly 'hymns'. With the reawakened interest in psalms, and with the emergence of the newer `worship songs', `Together in Song' contains a blend of hymns, psalms, songs and responses. It could be said to be international, ecumenical and contemporary. It is international in that material is drawn from no fewer than 48 countries. It is ecumenical in that it represents the liturgical insights of those churches represented on its Editorial Committee. It is contemporary in that all the material, whether old or new, is presented so that today's worshippers can use it without embarrassment or confusion". -- Foreword, p. viii.
"Together in Song" is an ecumenical hymn book which includes the participation of the Anglican Church of Australia.
