Our Story

From the very beginning in 1869, music has been a core part of what Concordia Publishing House has provided the Church. Our music catalog has grown to include hymnals, music for choirs of all sizes, and works for organ, piano, instruments, and handbells. We also offer worship planning tools, books, recordings, software, and apps to help customers make music wherever their vocations take them.

CPH is a recognized leader in publishing historic Lutheran masterworks alongside the best of today’s composers, hymnwriters, and artists. Church musicians trust CPH for sacred music of the highest quality and of the widest practicality. They recognize that here at CPH, we know church music.
