Overview


An inspirational gathering of fifty-nine new hymn texts, anthems, and poems by the author of Borrowed Light (OUP, 1994) and co-author, with composer Carol Doran, of New Hymns for the Life of the Church (OUP, 1992), and New Hymns for the Lectionary (OUP, 1986). Thomas Troeger is one of the most important American figures in the liturgical renewal movement and is in great demand for workshops, lectureships, and special worship services. His poems and texts for music are widely used by composers, even more widely adapted to standard hymn-tunes by parish musicians, and used by individuals and groups for private devotion. This powerful new collection covers the entire church year along with a broad range of contemporary concerns and issues. The texts are conveniently indexed according to meter, theme and image, and Scripture.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The poems and prayers [Borrowed Light] provide the perfect recipe for introducing new hymn texts in worship, hymn festivals, and special services. ...Troeger has produced creative, modern, inclusive, image-filled texts for church musicians, worship leaders, clergy, and composers." --Mary Schwarz, Cross Accent "He has the remarkable capacity to clothe rigorous theological ideas in words that linger on the tongue and bring music to the ear." --Alice Parker, Melodious Accord "Probably America's finest living hymnwriter." --Edward J. McKenna, Worship

Much of his teaching and scholarship has focused on the function of the imagination in the life of faith.
