Notes
"[B]y Herbert O'Driscoll with 10 new tunes and arrangements by Patrick Wedd".
"This collection of twenty hymns, varying much in style and content, grew out of a period which is probably the most eventful and traumatic two decades of Christian experience in recent generations. The earliest was composed in 1963 and the latest in 1978. Two of them were in time to be included in the new Hymn Book used widely by the Anglican and United Churches in Canada. Others have been accepted for use in other hymn books produced in the last decade". -- Preface.
Most hymns have an introduction giving background and context for the hymn. Hymns 15-20 have the following introduction: "The following six hymns have a common origin and purpose and so are placed together. Each hymn is a metrical version of the central thought in the Propers of a particular Sunday in the Christian Year as we have it in the Book of Common Prayer. In all cases the form is that of three verses, for Collect, Epistle, and Gospel respectively."

"Presbyterians were moved by their experience of worship using new hymns and songs and wished to share with the whole Church, the richness of expression and power of Christian witness embodied in this hymnody. The Synod of Saskatchewan and the Presbytery of Montreal brought overtures to the 1989 General Assembly, asking for the development of a revised hymn book. The General Assembly, granting the prayers of the overtures, established a task force to represent the theological and musical perspectives within the denomination. .... 'The Book of Praise' (1997), the fourth in a series of hymn books serving the denomination since 1897 (hymn books appeared under this name in 1897, 1918 and 1972), addresses these needs. The task force gave its final report to the Church in 1996 and the General Assembly recommended the publication and voluntary use of the revised book in congregations".

"The Ninetieth General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Canada resolved that The Book of Praise should be revised. The year was 1964, forty-six years after the launching of the hymn-book prepared under the convenorship of Dr. W.J. Dey with Dr. Alexander MacMillan as secretary. Now, in 1972, we present the new book to the Church. It is again called 'The Book of Praise' and from this date should become the accepted hymn-book for use among our people. This is the second revision of our Church's praise since 1897 when the Presbyterian Book of Praise was published, followed twenty-one years later by the book we have just revised. Our new book still bears the stamp of the two previous hymnals -- both of which were undoubtedly great books of praise." -- Preface.
