More New Hymns
A collection of new hymns by Reformed poets and composers is in the making. John Worst, professor of music at Calvin College, will serve as editor for the project. Composers and poets are invited to submit works until April 30, 1988.
The collection, which may serve as a hymnal supplement for churches that wish to expand their repertoire beyond the offerings of recent hymnals, is scheduled for release in late 1988. For more information contact David Schaap, 4500 Massachusetts Ave. NW, No. Ill; Washington, DC 20016; phone (202) 626-7580.
