From the publisher:

"Christianity is a 'singing church' with biblical foundations and centuries of examples in Psalms and canticles, hymns, and gospel songs. Rorem brings history to life through engaging tales of the stories behind hymn texts. Singing Church History is an ecumenical history of the music that has us 'singing church history' each Sunday."
