ERIOUS Catholics can finally purchase an exemplary hymnal that doesn’t mimic or “build upon” Protestant models. The pew edition is utterly sleek, and the supplemental materials (accompaniment volumes, rehearsal videos, choral supplement, etc.) are innovative and powerful. The New Liturgical Movement website (6/10/2019) called the Brébeuf “hands down, the best Catholic hymnal ever published.”
The Brébeuf Hymnal contains three times as many hymns as its competitors.
