    I have a copy of this hymnal...I think it's a great hymnal. It would be useful for a church that does traditional songs as well as some very worshipful praise songs.

    It's not our pew-hymnal. I just have a copy of it.

    It's a decent hymnal. Like all, it has some good stuff and bad stuff. It doesn't have enough stuff. That's why using projection is teh best way to go.

    It is good. It is based on the 1990 Word Publication's "Hymnal for Worship and Celebration" that has a great many true hymns as well as a good blend of choruses.

    We had a guest music director who used the Celebration Hymnal for our Revival Meeting. I have a copy and we use it as a supplement to our Baptist Hymnal.

    It also has some different arrangements or keys for some traditional hymns.

    It's an excellent hymnal. Well balanced between the many tradions of hymns and choruses.

    There are some medleys already setup with transitions. There are also some nice descants and choral endings for several hymns.

    It is a good worship music resource.
