Hymns in the news: Harvard introduces new hymnal.
Okay, there's no news coverage of it yet, but I think it's worth announcing. Harvard's Memorial Church introduces its new hymnal tomorrow. (I learned this from the small ad in the Boston Globe's nearly dead religion advertisements section.) The new Harvard Hymnal interests me for three reasons: The editor, Matthew Burt, was a classmate of mine at Harvard Divinity School; I love the ecumenical hymn tradition; and Memorial Church has been a champion of excellence in hymnody (classic and modern) for decades. I won't be able to attend, but I'll look forward to getting a copy of the collection.
