For the best match to the Episcopal Hymnal, see our Master Set, or a smaller collection, especially selected for users of the Episcopal Hymnal in the Episcopal Set.

Our Core Set provides many of the essential tracks, but the Prayerful Hymns Organ Accompaniments albums, add extra hymns to that set, taken from the Episcopal Hymn Book 1982, which will be useful both for US Episcopal churches, Anglicans worldwide and traditionalist Catholic churches. There are four albums of hymns plus an album of Service Music available here or from our Service Settings page.

These albums fit perfectly with the Devotional Hymns albums from the Episcopal Hymnal 1940. See below for a list of tracks. There are no voices on these recordings, just a playover and the accompaniment.
