"In the past several decades, the renewal of the spiritual life of the Church has created a pressing need for new hymnody and liturgical music. This has served as a catalyst for a world-wide outburst of creative liturgical music and musical activity of a magnitude perhaps unparalleled since the Reformation. 'The Hymnal 1982', the culmination of more than a decade of work by the Standing Commission on Church Music, incorporates many of the riches of this contemporary renaissance. This hymnal is a response to the challenge of the Church's mission to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ to a changed and changing world. 'The Hymnal 1982' is a revision of 'The Hymnal 1940', and as such stands on the foundation laid by the Joint Commission on Revision of the Hymnal." -- Preface.

"The settings contained in this booklet are from 'The Hymnal 1982', and are found at S 296- S304 (Noonday) and S 321- S 337 (Compline). The hymns are reprinted from the Singers Edition of the Hymnal.

"While Anglicans have long cherished the practice of reciting Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer -- often with singing, the Episcopal Church increasingly has also discovered the richness of the brief noonday and late evening Offices only since forms for these services appeared in the 'Book of Common Prayer', 1979. These so called 'little offices', historically owned exclusively by set-apart religious communities, now have been claimed by the church at large. Accordingly, 'The Hymnal 1982' has provided hymns and other traditional musical forms in its Appendix for the singing of these services. There are not many congregations apart from monasteries and convents where it is practical to sing the noonday and late evening Offices on a daily basis. Nonetheless, with repetition and in time, the music of these services and the practice of singing may add considerable beauty and depth of expression to the words prayed". -- Intro.

"This booklet was prepared under the authority of the Standing Liturgical Commission by a sub-committee of four which was responsible, under the chairmanship of the Reverend Canon Charles M. Guilbert, for the music of the Altar Edition of the Holy Eucharist. The sub-committee consisted of two members of the Commission's Editorial Committee, Captain Howard Galley, C.A., who also prepared the lay-out, and the Reverend Leo Malania, Co-ordinator; Mr. James Litton, of the Standing Commission on Church Music; and Mr. Mason Martens, who also served as Secretary of the sub-committee. Brother Robert Gillespie, C.A., prepared the musical art-work, and Mr. Nelson Gruppo is responsible for the design". -- Note on Production and Sources.
"This booklet contains the setting of the music of the ministers and responses of the congregation at the Holy Eucharist suggested in the musical appendix to the Altar Edition, together with settings of the dialoghue portions of Holy Baptism, the Proper Liturgies of Holy Week, the Order of Worship for the Evening, and Morning and Evening Prayer. A setting of the Lord's Prayer in contemporary language is also included. The use of this material is, of course, entirely optional. It provides a basic corpus of material which may serve the needs of many congregations, but it is not intended to preclude the use of other suitable settings." -- Preface.
