CPH is releasing a great sounding book, Eternal Anthems: The Story Behind Your Favorite Hymns. It includes 50 hymns with 40 contributing authors. Awesome! AND you can go here to download a free sample. Excellent.
I do wonder the relationship between this and the dreamily expansive 2 volume set of Lutheran Service book: Companion to the Hymns.
On sale for $13.59 here from CPH. 🙂
