For the best match to the Episcopal Hymnal, see our Master Set, or a smaller collection in the Episcopal Set.

Our Core Set provides many of the essential tracks, but the Devotional Hymns Organ Accompaniments albums, add extra hymns to that set, taken from the Episcopal Hymn Book 1940, which will be useful both for US Episcopal churches, Anglicans worldwide and traditionalist Catholic churches. There are 96 hymns on the original 4 volume set (available individually as downloads) with an additional 19 hymns, making 115 in total with the additional volume 5. These albums fit well with the Prayerful Hymns albums from the Episcopal Hymnal 1982.

There are no voices on these recordings, just a playover and the accompaniment.
