Where denominational hymnals feature beloved traditional hymns, the Upper Room Worshipbook is a wellspring for newer ecumenical selections.

A rich source of versatile liturgies, psalm settings, global songs, and prayer songs, this new edition of Upper Room Worshipbook is ideal for use at retreats, with choirs, and by individuals who want to enrich their personal devotional practices. The fresh collection is an essential resource for congregations experimenting with classical worship forms such as Evensong or Taizé.

Each section contains suggestions for using music and for introducing liturgies into the worship experience of a community. The book features inclusive language and a music index.

An Accompaniment & Worship Leader Edition is also available.
