New Music & Old Favorites United in Harmony

Gather Comprehensive -
Second Edition

Keeping with our mission to provide you with the finest hymnals possible, GIA surveyed people currently using Gather Comprehensive. These people told us what music they did and did not use and offered a wide range of valuable comments. We are extremely grateful to these individuals for their practical insight and experience!

The GIA hymnal committee studied the results of this survey carefully, mixing suggestions with their own 100 years of combined experience as pastoral musicians, and carefully chose the contents of Gather Comprehensive—Second Edition. GIA’s experienced staff then engraved, edited, and designed the hymnal. Just look at the list of Gather Comprehensive—Second Edition products that are currently available: pew, choral, keyboard, guitar, B-flat and C instrumental editions, the complete recording on a 21—compact disc set, and now this fantastic resource is available in a softbound pew edition (without readings) for only $6.50 per copy. Designed to give pastoral musicians a quick and easy way to find suitable new music, these CDs are a wonderful tool to help your assembly's repertoire grow. For your convenience, the contents of Gather Comprehensive—Second Edition is currently available on HymnPrint.net.

While the original Gather Comprehensive is more of a songbook with some ritual music, this Second Edition is a complete hymnal and service book in the fullest sense of the term. It is truly a “comprehensive” hymnal offering the songs, hymns, psalmody, and service music so well loved in today’s parishes, along with the very best in new liturgical music! We hope you enjoy using Gather Comprehensive—Second Edition as much as we loved creating it.

A beautiful, yet durable cover
The cover of Gather Comprehensive—Second Edition features glorious cover art by Yolanda Durán. The scenes revealed in the letters of “Gather” represent the story of our faith. From the Garden of Eden to the Ascension of our Lord, we gather together to remember and to offer praise and thanks to God!

In addition, the cover is made from newly designed book cloth, created especially for hymnals and ensuring long-lasting durability.

Fund Raising Made Easy
When raising hymnal funds, the place to start is Page One

Our experience has shown that parishes can raise the necessary funds quickly and easily within a matter of weeks. Simply encourage each family in the parish to donate a hymnal in their own name, or in memory of a deceased loved one, or both. Parishioners welcome this opportunity-something they just do not get with disposable worship aids. With self-adhesive donor bookplates that affix to the inside cover of the hymnals-which we supply free of charge upon request-the name of the donor or the person they are memorializing will remain in church for years to come. A sample of these free bookplates and donor collection envelopes (available for $10 per box of 500) are enclosed in this packet.

So not only are hymnals more economical in the long run, more environmentally friendly, and more beautiful to hold and use, hymnals virtually pay for themselves!

BOOKPLATES
Our free-upon-request "donor bookplates" affix directly, creating a loving memorial that will remain in church for years to come. At the same time the necessary funds are raised, quickly and easily. You may download bookplate files for the Gather Comprehensive, Second Edition Hymnal here.
