Sing a New Creation is a collection of 174 hymns and songs and 50 service music items, complied as a resource for church across denominations and as a supplement to Common Praise (1998), the current hymn book of the Anglican Church of Canada. The publication contains new settings of liturgical texts found in the Book of Alternative Services, including prayer responses, gospel acclamations, Amens, and canticles, and features guitar chords where appropriate.
Designed for use in many congregations and musical traditions, this supplemental volume includes new hymns and songs that do not appear in Common Praise (1998), nor in any of the hymnals in the U.S. Episcopal Church. In addition to many traditional-looking hymns, Sing a New Creation includes: short songs, songs that can be taught and sung “paperlessly,” lead sheets, and songs from around the globe.
