Hymnals
The Swiss Brethren hymnal, the Ausbund, is the oldest hymnal in continuous use in the world. The old Order Amish of North America still regularly sing selections from the Ausbund in their worship services. The "earliest hymns" of the Ausbund, translated here refers to a group of 53 songs that were composed and sung in a castle dungeon in Passau during the years 1535-1536. These compositions were preserved and eventually published as a booklet entitled Etliche schone christliche Gesang (Some Beautiful Christian Songs) in 1564. Nineteen years later, in 1583, these hymns became the core of the first known publication of the Ausbund.

Translated, annotated and with an introduction by Robert A. Riall. Copyright 2003 Pandora Press.

The new pocket size Ausbund & Lieder Sammlung "nota buch" is a two-year labor of love for Ben Troyer, Jr, Jonathan Miller, and Mahlon Gingerich from Holmes County, Ohio. Putting shaped notes to these church tunes will do much to preserve the Amish singing style by helping to familiarize young people with each of the 69 tunes in this book. Though shaped notes were chosen a person does not need to know shaped notes to learn the songs.
