This collection of Hopp's tunes has 35 hymns for the Church Year, the Church in the World, and the Church at Worship. Texts include those by Carl P. Daw, Jr., Timothy Dudley-Smith, Fred Pratt Green, Christopher Idle, Michael Perry, Brian Wren, and several older hymns in new settings.
"Roy Hopp is a skillful writer of tunes. Many of them have the kind of inevitable sweep which can be so appealing in Victorian tunes, and several employ the type of repeating rhythmic patterns which propel historic tunes like Genevan 47 to such good effect. [The hymnary] would repay examination by any who are interested in either new texts or new music." The Hymn
