The Episcopal Musician’s Handbook assigns every Sunday and every major holy day of the year two facing pages. The left page contains the date, liturgical observance, customary color, collect, Sunday lections from the Revised Common Lectionary, proper preface, and hymn listings from The Hymnal 1982, Lift Every Voice and Sing II, and Wonder, Love, and Praise. The right-page grids are worksheets on which to plan service music.

Extra planning pages are included for Christmas, Easter and Pentecost, and hymn checklists at the back of the book allow you to keep track of usage. Hymn suggestions are matched to the theme of the gospel, lessons, collect or season.

The Episcopal Musician’s Handbook is your helpful guide for planning worship.
