WEFOUNDHymnal for Evangelical Lutheran Missions (Classic Reprint)

Hymnals , also called hymnbooks (or hymn books) and occasionally hymnaries, are books of hymns sung by religious congregations. The following is a list of English-language hymnals by denomination .

Note: Not all congregations use a hymnal from their own denomination. For example there are churches in the Evangelical Lutheran Synod that use the two oldest LCMS hymnals as well as the current WELS hymnal.

The official sacred music of most of the Roman Catholic Church (specifically, the Roman Rite ) is in the form of Gregorian chant , and appears in the Roman Missal and the Roman Gradual . The Missal contains all that is to be sung during Mass by the priest at the altar, while the Gradual contains all the music sung by the choir. The standard Roman Gradual contains complex Gregorian Chant while the Graduale Simplex substitutes easier Gregorian chants. All of these are in Latin, and are published for use throughout most of the Latin Rite (the vast majority of Roman Catholic parishes).
