What Do You Want? Good Glamour, Good Taste, or Good Music?  Jan 19, 2004
For all the world, this appears to be a re-release in paperback of old "pumpkin," which was merely the orange-colored generic hymnal version of the PRESBYTERIAN HYMNAL HYMNS PSALMS & SPIRITUAL SONGS. "Pumpkin" was not marketed in the standard denominational blue cover and PC-USA logo, but got its nickname from its darkish orange cover and bore a stripped title: simply as HYMNS PSALMS & SPIRITUAL SONGS--yet otherwise its contents were completely identical to the PRESBYTERIAN HYMNAL HYMNS PSALMS & SPIRITUAL SONGS cited above. (whew!) As such our orange fellow-traveler found a home in many churches seeking an update to the classic but woefully obsolete *Pilgrim Hymnal* (1955), such as independent Congregational churches and others, not necessarily Presbyterian, but "in the Reformed tradition."

There are many good things to commend the Pres-based hymnal to potential purchasers--when it came out in the very early 1990s it was quite fresh, and included such hymns as "Here I Am, Lord" and "Help Us Accept Each Other." Other on-point and relevant remarks are available to the reader who cares to access the this site reviewer who reviewed the blue PRESBYTERIAN HYMNAL (HYMNS, PSALMS, etc.) under that title and gave it a solid score.

On the downside, of course, are the facts that our hymnal--and here I simply am forced to assume through experience, anecdote and coincidental trim size that it is Pumpkin gone fibrous--is now long in the tooth, overpriced as a paperback, and not as wildly popular even in its home denomination as one might have hoped. A survey by the Denomination in the late 1990s revealed that the pertinent PC-USA hymnal had reached a congregational purchase percentage only in the mid-eighties, when ninety percent would be considered "saturation" for such a product. Actual constant USE of the item for Sunday worship was in the low seventies; reasons cited were that the hymnal was felt to be excessively "PC," having excised hymns like "Onward, Christian Soldiers"; also, some choirs felt that the four-part harmonies in the book, while maybe pretty okay for the congregation most of the time, defaulted to the unchallengingly banal and barbeshoppy--alto a third below soprano, tenor a fifth off tonic, typical "drag" bass, that sort of thing. I've been in such a Pres. choir and agree with that judgment.

Inquiring minds could do just as well to borrow the blue PC-USA hymnal from a PC-USA church and flip thru the content before spending the $14.95 for a paperback with identical or nearly identical content. Spend a dollar or two more and get a superior, fresher, wildly popular new hymnal: the exceptional choice is VOICES IN WORSHIP, published by the Christian & Missionary Alliance yet now become so theologically ecumenical as to constitute a modern "Unihymnal" with something for everyone, right down to Spanish-language translations of old familiar hymns like "Holy, Holy, Holy" ("Santo, Santo, Santo"), Taize chants and the more frequent Roman Catholic plainsong like "Of the Father's Love Begotten."

Also, if you groove on the phrase "Open Minded = Open Hearted," the Catholic Publisher GIA in suburban Chicago, of all people, has wonderful new African-American oriented hymnals and curricula, the newest of which outdo many if not most white Protestant material. Worth checking out, and this site has them too. Check out the AFRICAN-AMERICAN HERITAGE HYMNAL; it is really pinning people's ears back!
