    Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops announced the new hymnal for 2021

    I looked at the list of hymns included, and it's a real mixed bag.

    Sure is - I see some 'praise' songs there too ... well by "praise" I don't mean songs that repeat the same lyrics ad nauseum.

    Onward Christian Soldiers seems to be missing too ... The latest ELCA ELW hymnal deleted that one, too. <sigh>

    I have a memory of Onward Christian Soldiers, at the time it was not amusing; a friend of mine & I had imbibed to excess on Saturday evening and heads were a little fragile, the first hymn was Onward, the organist did not take pity on us but opened up with everything at maximum.
    This was back in the 1960s when I was in the Royal Air Force and the church was on the base, the organ was a Hammond with massive speakers, there were quite a few Hammonds in RAF churches, probably the originals with phonic wheels producing the notes, do any still exist in working order?
    Cheers MIKE.

    My last paid gig was a wedding in an Anglican Church on a Hammond C3. I suffered the tone wheel sound and the ridiculously inadequate pedals, but made a few $. The best man gave me two thumbs up after the service, so I guess I'm the only one who hated the sound.
