There’s no question that Lutheran churches often love tradition, and yet many churchgoers benefit from the options technology brings. Along that vein, CPH Music is excited to release two new editions of Lutheran Service Book. One is a pocket-size hymnal, which is reminiscent of generations past. The other is a text-only ebook, for those who are more future-minded.
It’s that time of year again—time for our new music to be released! We’re excited to share with you CPH’s new music for 2018. This year’s collection features 33 choral pieces, 19 titles for organ or piano, and 10 handbell works. A few highlights are detailed below. At the end of the post, you can download the digital music catalog to browse all of the new pieces.

As some churches move toward high-tech services with more modern music, some may consider handbells old fashioned, out of date, or just not interesting. But handbell ensembles have specific benefits that can’t be matched by other types of ensembles. Because of their unique, irreplaceable roles, they are as important in the church as they have ever been.
If you’re an organist, you know that the search for Sunday-morning music can be endless. You need to cover several spots in each service where hymns aren’t being sung. You need to find music that can be learned quickly but is still interesting. And sometimes, you just have a hard time finding music that matches with a given Sunday’s hymns.
Recognizing the need for a handy and varied selection of hymn preludes, CPH Music started developing Hymn Prelude Library in 2011. Now, we’re about to release Volume Eleven in the series! Get a preview of the new volume below.
