|The Earliest Hymns of the Ausbund: Some Beautiful Christian Songs Composed and Sung in the Prison at Passau, Published in 1564||View|
|by Galen A. Peters, editor|
paperback, 468 pages, $75.00|
|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.

|Ausbund & Lieder Sammlung Songs with shaped notes||View|
|by Ben Troyer, Jr, Jonathan Miller & Mahlon Gingerich|
spiral, 110 pages, $6.00|
|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. |
