His are the great hosannas — perspectives on conservation and renewal of the church hymn
Throughout the ages until the present day the Christian Church has been committed to the Biblical, theological and ecclesiastical tradition in which the hymns and anthems served to express and interpret its faith. The conservation of a rich hymnological tradition has not restrained the Church to strive for renewal of the hymnal. This pursuit is based on the insight that hymnological renewal is necessary from a theological and practical point of view. In this article certain theological, literary and musicological perspectives are presented on the duality between hymnological conservation and renewal.
