- Hymnbooks of 1960s
Children sing: Christian songs for boys and girls. Elgin, Illinois: David C. Cook Publishing Company, 1962.
Children sing is intended for home or Sunday
school use and helpfully codes each hymn according to appropriate age level:
nursery (N), kindergarten (K), primary (P) and junior (J).
Songs and hymns for primary children. Illustrated by Marian Ebert. Philadelphia: Westminster Press, 1963.
Songs and hymns for primary
features the interesting innovation of including familiar carols with one
stanza in a foreign language, as young children were at that time increasingly
learning languages other than English in school. ‘Silent night’ appears in the
Winifred Wilson (editor). Hymns for young Christians. Full music edition. London: Geoffrey Chapman, 1967.
Wilson’s Hymns for young Christians
is a collection of unashamedly traditional English hymns for ages 8-13. As an
alternative to “the stream of gospel and religious folk song and holy pop that
flows past,” the editor draws upon the wealth of hymns, psalms, and spiritual
canticles through which her immediate and more remote English forebears
expressed their faith.
