Abstract:

Hymnody is widely recognised as a central tenet of Methodism's theological, doctrinal, spiritual and liturgical identity. Theologically and doctrinally, the content of the hymns have traditionally been a primary vehicle for expressing Methodism's emphasis on salvation for all, social holiness and personal commitment, while particular hymns and the communal act of participating in hymn singing has been a key element in the spiritual lives of Methodists. An important contribution to the history of Methodism, British Methodist Hymnody argues that the significance of hymn-making in British Methodism is best understood as a combination of its official status, spiritual expression, popular appeal and practical application. Seeking to consider what, when, how and why Methodists sing, British Methodist Hymnody examines the history, perception and practice of hymnody from Methodism's small-scale eighteenth-century origins to its place as a worldwide denomination today.
