Resounding Voices Hymnal

Resounding Voices is a tribute to the 2003 hymnal Voices Found on its twentieth anniversary. The groundbreaking hymnal was the visionary work of The Rt. Rev. Allen Bartlett, Lisa Neufeld Thomas, and the newly formed board of the Women’s Sacred Music Project. The ecumenical and interfaith collection of songs addressed a near absence of liturgical music by women.

In the last twenty years there has been more music by women in the church, especially choral music; but hymns seem to be the slowest to change. May this rich assortment of sacred song awaken our hearts, enliven our worship, and inspire our understanding of The Holy One. 

This project has been made possible through a Vital Worship Grant from the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, Grand Rapids, Michigan, with funds provided by Lilly Endowment, Inc. Additional funding has been provided by the Association of Anglican Musicians, the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music of the Episcopal Church, The Rt Rev. Terry Allen White, Bishop of Kentucky, and the Mozingo Foundation. We gratefully acknowledge the support of The Hymn Society of the United States and Canada; Hope Publishing Company; and all the publishers who granted use of their copyrighted material. To Rev. Dr. Michael McMahon, Mr. Scott Shorney, and Rev. Dr. Janet Wootton, we owe special thanks for your encouragement and guidance.

Voices Found Hymnal

Working with the Standing Committee on Liturgy and Music of the Episcopal Church, WSMP produced this hymnal supplement to celebrate the gifts of women. Voices Found: Women in the Church’s Song, was published in 2003 by Church Publishing, Inc. More about the history of Voices Found.

While the Episcopal Church published this hymnal, it is designed for ecumenical use. Toward this end workshops have been presented in many different cities. Promotion of Voices Found is an ongoing project and we welcome requests for workshops or demonstrations by churches or related organizations of all denominations.
