(Revised) Trinity Hymnal Index
This is an index for the Revised (Red) Trinity Hymnal, published by GCP. Indices of the old (Blue) Trinity Hymnal exist at the OPC website. Note that if you want the lyrics or sheet music for hymns in Trinity Hymnal, I cannot help you (especially with the particulars of TH editorial choices or arrangements). There are plenty of resources on the web to remind you what a hymn tune sounds like, or what the historical words to a hymn are, but if you want to know “What are the new words for How Sweet and Awful?” or “What key is Joy to the World in”, I highly recommend you buy yourself a Trinity Hymnal for personal reference. But for those times when you are out and about, and need to discuss details of an upcoming church service, you might find this index a handy substitute.
I did not create this index, but cobbled it together from other sources. The incipits here add yet another convention to these, by encoding the first line of the tune as if it were in the key of C major (or a minor).
As of 1/09, this is a quick and dirty first attempt at this index. Eventually I intend to do useful things like
- Sort scripture references by bible order, not alphabetically
- Link scripture references to online bibles (in the meantime, try the Refalizer add-on for FireFox)
- Link tune names to online resources such as CCEH or CyberHymnal
