subscribing to hymns

This list will focus first on the study of traditional hymns and their continuing role in the Church. At the same time, we live in a time when new hymns and tunes are being created in unprecedented numbers. This list could serve as a vehicle for discussing poetic and musical styles, becoming familiar with new work in particular faith communities, and finding appropriate solutions to matters of language and inclusivity.

Ultimately, the group will determine the nature of the discussion and this introduction may need to be revised.

The list will be archived and a digest option may be available. We're also looking into a file-sharing facility--more on that later.
