An Episcopal Dictionary of the Church

English Hymnal, The

A British hymnal published in 1906 under the leadership of Percy Dearmer as general editor and Ralph Vaughan Williams as musical editor. A second edition including minor but important changes was published in 1933, and a more comprehensive revision, The New English Hymnal, was published in 1986. The first two editions had a strong influence on the form and content of The Hymnal (1940).
