Choral Praise Comp 2: Grr!!!
Ok, there are things to like here. It is an improvement over CPC1 in many ways, but two GLARING problems present themselves:
1) Non-alphabetical order of hymns, so now people REALLY have to look at the index to find the number (which, of course, corresponds to NO other published resource).
2) Hillert “Festival Canticle” is not there, apparently a victim of its not being popular enough for CPC2, albeit still popular enough for Breaking Bread.
Seriously, if “Abba, Father!” and “Only a Shadow” are still popular enough, but this big, bad, and beautiful piece isn’t, that is something to lament.
EDIT: Apparently “The King Shall Come When Morning Dawns” and “Jerusalem, My Happy Home” were also casualties; at least these, though, are public domain.
