Celebration Hymnal


In a work of this magnitude, hundreds of decisions, from the significant to the seemingly insignificant, determine the quality of the final result. An uncompromising commitment to excellence has guided every step of the creation of The Celebration Hymnal.

The nearly 700 songs included in The Celebration Hymnal were chosen on the basis of textual integrity, musical interest, and universal usage by today's evangelical church. As a non-denominational hymnal, the compilation was developed with the sole purpose of providing the strongest possible collection of songs and hymns for today's congregations. Hundreds of songs were evaluated carefully by this broad spectrum of advisors and consultants.

The Celebration Hymnal

Review by swtadelinda


This hymnal was purchased by our small church a few years ago however am disappointed that there is not a hymnal transposed into lower key signatures for older voices. Some find the hymns in the original key signature to be pitched too high

Digital Age - All the Rave

Review by Worship the Way


Our church is a small church wanting to make big changes with our music. We really like this hymnal however, unless they come up with a digital copy of the music we will not be purchasing these hymnals. We are moving into having 2 services. One for people who want a more traditional service and another service for people who want a more contemporary service. We would buy both the hymnals and a digital copy however, we need both, not just one. Please think about making a digital copy...the younger generations want something they are familiar with.

New Technology.. New Marketing

Review by Young Church Pianist


I play for a large Baptist church in the South. I was not familiar with the Celebration Hymnal until I accepted the job there. It's great! I especially love the accompanist's edition of the hymnal!

However, I am disappointed that I cannot find a digital copy of this music anywhere. Being 22 and having access to newer technology, I have recently moved all of my service music over to my iPad. It's not a lot of papers to juggle, I can write notes on music and erase when I'm done, and even keep my songs in an ordered set so I'm not constantly flipping (or skipping) pages. The ONLY thing that I am not able to use is the Celebration Hymnal. I would love to see (and would gladly pay for) a PDF or ebook of the hymnal. It would be especially handy on the Sundays where we do multiple hymns in a row... That accompanist book is awesome, but it can be quite cumbersome!

I have many church musician friends, and several are going (or have already gone) to some type of tablet for easier organization. So, I just wanted to put a petition out there for us tech savvy folks. We still love the old hymns and use them regularly! Thanks!

This is the most balanced hymnal available

Review by Faithful Baptist


I have recently purchased this hymnal for our church and through the research I did I found this to include the largest amount of 'newer' hymns and spiritual songs while still retaining the standard older hymns that have been sung in church services for 50+ years. It also has unprecedented transitions and segues and optional endings, along with a scripture reference for every song. And, it is available with the KJV text.

Have loved it for 10 years

Review by Reformed Baptist in Dallas,TX


I have played in a small church orchestra, using this hymnal, for 10 years. Through the years, we have had various instruments in the group based on whatever instruments members played. As long as we have had a piano, the group has always sounded full and wonderful. We absolutely love this hymnal. I recommend it for all group sizes!!!

The Celebration Hymnal

Review by Lou


Great hymnal

One of our favorites!

Review by Brandi


This is, by far, one of our very favorite hymnals.
The diversity of the songs and the elegance of arrangements makes this a fantastic hymnal for choir specials, anthems, and weekly worship.
