What People Are Saying:

The St. Michael Hymnal represents extraordinary sensibilities--theological, liturgical, literary, musical. The editorial team made so many smart choices.  Making the St. Michael available beyond the parish that created it is a kind of gift to those looking for such a resource. Although there are others like it, the SMH is in a class by itself. It is also such a handsome book. The binding and typography and layout are worthy of the contents. This landmark hymnal is inspired and inspiring."

"We wanted a hymnal which would help students come more fully to a reverent encounter with Christ in the liturgy and a hymnal that would make the depth and range of the Church's rich heritage of music accessible to the students.  The St. Michael Hymnal was a great fit.  Our students come from parishes, and they will go back out to parishes.  They will benefit from what the St. Michael Hymnal can teach them about integrating this heritage into their own contexts."
--Msgr. James Patrick Shea, President
University of Mary, Bismarck, ND

Msgr. James P. Moroney, rector of St. John's Seminary, Boston, MA reviews the hymnal:

"Last Fall a new hymnal made an appearance in Saint John’s Seminary Chapel.  The St. Michael Hymnal was first published in 1998 by St. Boniface Church in Lafayette, Indiana, growing out of the parish’s need for congregational music that was liturgically appropriate, doctrinally precise, and accessible to all parishioners . . ."  Read the entire review here.
