Update on the Caribbean Praise Hymnal
Rev. Dr. Mikie Roberts
Director, Provincial Hymnal Committee.
The historic publication of the first Caribbean Moravian hymnal – Caribbean Moravian Praise – is near completion. Upon completion of the hard cover hymnal, each congregation will also receive a database that will contain a reference to the hymn tunes. In this database the music for the new hymns will be provided.
However, in cases where the tune for the hymn is unchanged the actual music for that hymn will not be provided. Instead the database will indicate the name of the tune and the number of that hymn in the current music edition. By so doing, it is our desire that the new hymns will soon be incorporated into the congregation’s hymnal repertoire since the tunes will be at the congregation’s disposal.
