George’s ‘Singing a New Song’ series includes 4 general volumes of new lyrics and 3 volumes (1 for each year) of new lyrics based on the Gospel readings from the Revised Common Lectionary. Indexes help one easily find tunes, titles, first lines and gospel passages used in 280 of the lyrics (George’s favourites). If you have the time to browse through the electronic versions of the books themselves, there are many more lyrics not listed in the indexes. The full musical scores are included beside the lyrics except when there are copyright law restrictions.
