Minds and Hearts in Praise of God: Hymns and Essays in Church Music in Honor of Hugh T. McElrath


Music, David W., The Hymn


Minds and Hearts in Praise of God: Hymns and Essays in Church Music in Honor of Hugh T. McElrath edited by J. Michael Raley and Deborah Carlton Loftis. Franklin, TN: Providence House Publishers, 2006. 310 pp. ISBN: 978-1-57736-307-1. U.S. $24.95.

Whitney, Donald Eugene Winters, Brian Wren, and Carlton R. Young, while the essays were written by Paillette Moore Catherwood, Esther Rothenbusch Crookshank, Harry Eskew, Janelle Ganey, Paul Hammond, C. Michael Hawn, Donald Paul Hustad, Deborah Carlton Loftis, William N. McElrath, J. Michael Raley, Paul A. Richardson, and Mel R Wilhoit; a bibliography of published and selected unpublished works by McElrath - including theses and dissertations he supervised or for which he was a member of the committee-compiled by David Louis Gregory and William Jeffrey Jones is appended. The bibliography, all of the articles, and several of the hymns were written by the honoree's former students, faculty colleagues, co-authors, or relatives (several of the contributors fall into more than one of these categories).

The hymns include both new texts and new tunes. …
