Then Sings My Soul Special Edition by Robert J. Morgan is a great book with background on 150 most loved hymns. The collection of hymns centers on the holidays with the first sections being devoted to Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving. The assortment then moves on to patriotic hymns as well as classical favorites such as “Amazing Grace” and “Just as I am.”
The book is paperback and has a picture of a beautiful green meadow on the front cover. The pages are roughly cut giving it an old world feel in a modern jacket. The format is simple and clear. Each song takes up two pages, one page contains the hymn (complete with musical score just like you would find in a hymnal), the other page contains the background information to the hymn.
I highly recommend Then Sings my Soul to anyone interested in the stories behind the hymns. I can see it being especially helpful and encouraging music ministers. The retail price is $19.99 (paperback), and is available around the web in places like Amazon.com for $13.59. I gave it five stars.
