Cantus Christi is currently out of stock as Christ Church prepares a 2nd edition. Questions should be directed to Christ Church at christkirk.com.
With the Cantus Christi hymnal and psalter, we endeavor to recover a small portion of the 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."
What People Are Saying:
"excellent." -James Jordan
"One of the best hymnals I've had the privilege of using." -Suzannah
"An absolute gold mine of the Western Christian tradition" -Timothy
