ASEMPA HYMNS (Children's Edition)

Author: RT. REV. Dominic K. Andoh | Rev. C. Awotwi-Pratt
Genre: MUSIC
ISBN-10: 9964-78-469-4


HERE IS an English language hymn book with a difference. It not only includes 200 of the most popular British, German, and American hymns, but it also brings together a similar number of compositions from Africa, Asia, and the rest of the world.
Produced in Ghana, Asempa Hymns contains some 90 items from that country including 28 ďGhana spiritualsĒ traditionally sung by the Pentecostals but now gaining popularity in all churches. In many of these there is a distinctive Ghanaian flavour, which this book and the companion music collection Ghana Praise make available for the first time to Christians in other
lands.
The Western tradition of hymnody has served Africa well for many years, but the rich traditions of other countries have failed to spread, held up by barriers of language, denomination, and communication. The appearance of Asempa Hymns, with its wide choice of hymns, from nearly all the continents, will help brothers and sisters in Christ in many lands to realize a new fellowship in song, and will shorten the distances that divide us.
