Red Hymn books

I think there may have been a second supplement to the 1950s editions - I seem to remember a slim book with light blue or perhaps gray covers. When I get home after band tonight, I'll look through my file - I have at least one copy of almost everything that the SA has published since the mid-1950s.
The old grey book! Memories memories!

It had the Pathway of Duty in it and I think it finished at no.807 (Blacow).

I'll get my anorak.................

Anorak duly donned, I have a piano copy , copyright 1963, and you're right about 807 (Blacow).
BTW, talking about Songs of Faith, was that the Canadian book arr. Norman Bearcroft with the high euph parts?
 
'Insane' euph parts might be nearer the mark, from what I remember ...
I think they were more playable if you took the page and turned it upside down. There were loads of trills etc. in the euph parts too. Didn't you just love it though???

Might have, if I'd been a euph player; I think for the rest of us they were just a source of amusement ...

I've deleted the last three posts in this thread.

Please refrain from making frivolous posts. Although this thread has been allowed to drift a bit off-topic, the posts in question were simply not even germane to the discussion going on, and have therefore been deleted.

Thank you for your cooperation.

We got new copies of the red hymn book recently - and considering how widely they are used, and for such a long time, I still can't believe they haven't corrected all the mistakes! (and I don't mean the mistakes I add in!!)
