Recover our great Christian musical heritage!

Our affections are shaped and molded by the music we sing and hear.

Currently, the happy clappy Evangelical church is limited to a very small range of musical expression, and if our music does not train us to vigorously celebrate or to bitterly lament, how will we and our children be prepared when great victories or great tragedies confront us.

Will we have the right words come to our minds?

This hymnal includes some familar classics (A Mighty Fortress; And Can It Be; Holy, Holy, Holy; When I Survey the Wondrous Cross; etc.) and some memorable but sadly unknown compositions (St. Patrick's Breastplate; The Son of God Goes Forth to War) and over a hundred and twenty Psalms. "Praise the Lord! Sing to the Lord a new song, And His praise in the assembly of saints."

Cantus 2020 new songs:

  •  Complete Psalter with triple the settings: Cantus 2020 contains at least one complete metrical setting of every Psalm (increased from 114 to 300)
  • More than double the number of Hymns (increased from 189 to 402, yes now it includes Amazing Grace!)
  • More Service Music (increased from 28 to 42)
  • More fuguing tunes (increased from 6 to 26)
  • Removed all chants, decreased the bulk of the Genevan Psalms by half, and added all 50 through-composed Erb Psalms.

Would like more!

We love singing from these in our home, and have four well-worn copies. When will they be back in stock?

love it so much

Exactly what we needed!

This exact version is used at our children’s school and we bought it to use in our home as well! Excellent selection of hymns and psalms. We enjoy learning the different versions of some of the selections such as the Sanctus.


A wonderful hymnal, and a great blessing to my family!
