Sacred Music and Hymnology

A guide to reference material, books, articles, and performance materials for sacred music.


This page collects resources to help you select works for performance. The catalogues and selection guides below are just a sampling of what's available to you at MPAL. Browse the library catalog to find additional resources for work selection.

Search Tip: Many (but not all) catalogues and selection guides will be classified as "bibliographies" (meaning works that include descriptions and lists of other works and publications) in the catalog, so adding "bibliography" as a search term may help you track down more material.
