Hymns for All Seasons [Hardbound Hymn Book]

by James Quinn, SJ

The Complete Works of James Quinn, SJ

Jesuit Father James Quinn published his first collection of hymn texts in 1969. Over the years this quiet, modest man by nature became one of the most prolific hymn text writers of our time. His treasury of hymns texts spans a wide spectrum of occasions and seasons, from hymns for children and adaptations of Scripture to well-established seasonal tunes, hymns for the Divine Office and more.

With Hymns for All Seasons, OCP is proud to present the first-ever complete edition of Father Quinn's hymn texts. Using clean, sparse language, Father Quinn bestowed on us a treasury of texts that are scriptural, catechetical and theological, texts that gained widespread use in Christian churches of all denominations around the world over the years.

An internationally known composer, Paul Inwood served as the editor for this lovely book—collecting all the hymns, writing scholarly notes, finding the musical settings and tracking down eight previously unpublished hymns.

Each hymn includes the following:
Text-only version of the hymn
Author's notes (original to Fr. Quinn)
Editor's notes (from Paul Inwood)
Hymn tune options

Suggested topics:
Music setting (though the majority of hymns have this, there are several that don't)
This definitive collection provides a wealth of information for hymnologists, pastoral musicians and others interested in hymns. It will also make a wonderful addition to any reference or music library.

Quinn’s Hymns for All Seasons was reviewed in The American Organist! Columnist Jonathan B. Hall writes, “In the Constitution on Sacred Liturgy, Sacrosanctum Concilium, the council fathers held that the rites of the Church should be distinguished by ‘noble simplicity.’ The poetry of James Quinn, SJ is written precisely to that point. Quinn’s hymn texts work out the meaning of noble simplicity.” Hall later concludes, “… Quinn succeeds extraordinarily well. That several of his texts have made their unassuming way into our hearts is proof enough.”
