Rejoice and Sing is a completely new collection of hymns and songs for the United Reformed Church. It is the first major hymnbook to draw together the three traditions within the URC and as such represents a significant landmark in the history of the denomination. The editors and compilers have aimed to offer a worship tool for use by today's Church. The material included ranges from the traditional and familiar to those pieces with a more contemporary feel. In addition to hymns and psalms, Rejoice and Sing contains a number of liturgical items, including responses and prayers for congregational use. Although intended primarily to reflect the distinctive character of the URC, Rejoice and Sing is also offered to Christians in wider ecumenical circles as an important resource for sung worship.

About the Author:

The United Reformed Church (URC) is a Christian denomination church in the United Kingdom.

Review:

Rejoice and Sing has a wider selection of hymns and tunes and is the more traditional in nature and perhaps more attractive to lovers of hymnody.

Christian Herald

The kind of church music that forms a particularly strong part of the faith in a new generation of believers is ... represented.
Incorporated Society of Musicians

Rejoice and Sing presents us with more balance and variety in worship music than in any previous book. If the job of the minister, worship leader or music director is to choose on behalf of the congregation the relevant style as a channel for an encounter with God, this book makes that task
easier.
Incorporated Society of Musicians

Rejoice and Sing should be warmly welcomed for its generous scope and mix of Christian song from the first to the present century. It is worth its cost.
Incorporated Society of Musicians

Some new and exciting modern hymns and songs.
Incorporated Society of Musicians

Recommended as a core book for Congregationalists.
Incorporated Society of Musicians

The publication of Rejoice and Sing is exciting for a number of reasons - most obviously because it is the first official hymn-book of the United Reformed Church since its foundation in 1972.
Hymn Society Bulletin

... it embodies a confluence of three streams - Congregational, Presbyterian and the Churches of Christ. Yet it does not, happily, show signs of bargaining or compromise between the traditions represented in it.
Hymn Society Bulletin

... the book shows the degree to which hymnody has moved on in the last few years.
Hymn Society Bulletin

In the main, the alterations are unobtrusive and felicitous ... wisely they have not pushed these things to extremes.
