What People Are Saying
"Seminarians use their musical gifts for the glory of God with the help of the new St. Michael Hymnal."
Msgr. James P. Moroney, rector of St. John's Seminary, Boston, MA reviews the hymnal:
"Last Fall a new hymnal made an appearance in Saint John’s Seminary Chapel. The St. Michael Hymnal was first published in 1998 by St. Boniface Church in Lafayette, Indiana, growing out of the parish’s need for congregational music that was liturgically appropriate, doctrinally precise, and accessible to all parishioners . . ."

"We have thoroughly enjoyed our musical exploration of the new St. Michael Hymnal
. Several positive factors influenced our choice of the St. Michael Hymnal
such as inclusion of the Entrance antiphons, high quality settings of the Mass Ordinary, and hymns presented in 'original' keys (rather than in lowered keys). This means that the body of organ literature surrounding these traditional hymns is still usable as prelude and postlude material, since the keys are the same.
This hymnal is expertly edited and beautifully crafted. It meets our theological and liturgical needs, while at the same time offering us a variety of engaging music. Our parish will be challenged by and satisfied with this hymnal for decades to come."
