"For this collection, I have surveyed many sources of music for congregations of all ages as well as mainline denominationsal and children's hymnals, probably more than 3,000 pieces in all, to compile music that dates from 1980 onwards. .... Knowing that the children will not get to sing the music if adults don't enjoy it too, I have included songs and hymns that are most effectively sung in harmony unaccompanied. Not all churches have organs and organists today, and this music encourages congregational singing and individual competence. .... This book is essentially liturgical. It is arranged according to the shape of the liturgy and the church year. It will be invaluable for inter-generational liturgies." -- Intro., p. iii.
