A collection of ten new hymns has been launched by Jubilate to mark the centenary of Armistice Day and the end of the First World War.

The collection includes the winner of Jubilate's ‘Hymns of Peace’ competition, ‘Hope for the World's Despair’ by Ally Barrett. A flagship recording of the winning hymn (set to the tune of ‘My Song is Love Unknown’), featuring Jonathan Veira and the All Souls Orchestra conducted by Noël Tredinnick, is now available at www.jubilate.co.uk/projects/hymns_of_peace, along with a reflective, animated video that could be used in church services and other events.

Jubilate has sought for more than 50 years to promote the use of quality words and music in worship in churches across the world. In its early days it was involved with a number of ground-breaking publications; now its primary outlet is through its website with more than 1,500 texts and over 800 tunes covering a wide range of styles and subjects. Its agency, Jubilate Hymns Ltd, administers the copyrights of many of the UK's leading composers and writers.

  • Individual hymn texts and downloads can be found by following the links at www.jubilate.co.uk/projects/hymns_of_peace, or the full collection is available as a music book (including alternative traditional tunes for many of the hymns) either in print form or as a PDF download.

  • Jubilate's sister project RESOUNDworship.org was launched a decade ago, bringing the same values of singable, inspiring, carefully crafted composition to the contemporary worship genre.
