"The primary purpose of this index is to provide help in the selection of suitable hymns for the various rites of the Church and for different days and seasons of the Church Year. It should also be helpful in suggesting suitable organ music, anthems, and solos for organists, choir directors, and cantors. This index lists hymns for use in the Daily Offices and the Holy Eucharist for every day or occasion for which the Book of Common Prayer provides propers. It also suggests hymns for Holy Baptism, for the Pastoral Offices, and for the Episcopal Services of the Book of Common Prayer; for various rites in the Book of Occasional Services; and for each of the propers of Lesser Feasts and Fasts. .... It is the hope of the author that this index will be helpful in relating the music to the rites of the Book of Common Prayer and that it will encourage a fuller use of the riches of the Hymnal 1982". -- Intro.
