Welcome to Common Praise online -- a source of musical encouragement and inspiration for lovers of Common Praise - the hymnal of the Anglican Church of Canada.

To hear what a particular hymn sounds like, simply use the menu on the left to find the hymn you're after, then click on the audio link.  If you're using an iPad or don't have Adobe Flash enabled, click on the name of the hymntune instead to open the audio file in a new browser window.

Happy music-making!


Website problems. In early September this site was hacked and malware was spread throughout. It was cleaned professionally, then re-hacked a few days later. I am in the process of building a completely new site using basically the same content but with more secure, up-to-date software. This is a big undertaking for a site with over 700 pages (each of which has to be created individually) but it is a necessary step.

I'm grateful that this site is of interest to so many people, far beyond the original handful of students who I thought would use it. I hope to have the new one up and running by the end of the year (at this same address). In the meantime, your prayers would be appreciated.
