The Hymn Society in the United States and Canada (HS)

Founded in 1922, The Hymn Society in the United States and Canada is an organization for those who believe that congregational song is an integral component of worship, believe that the writing and singing of new texts and tunes needs to be promoted, and value learning about the origins of the words and music they sing. The society produces a quarterly publication, The Hymn, a journal of research and opinion, containing practical and scholarly articles and reflecting the diverse cultural and theological identities of the organization’s membership.

Association of Anglican Musicians (AAM)

The AAM is an organization of musicians and clergy in the Episcopal Church and throughout the Anglican Communion. Recognizing that the music of the church finds its primary expression within the framework of the liturgy, the association takes as its purpose the elevation, stimulation, and support of music and the allied arts in all their aspects in the Anglican church, and especially in their relationship to liturgy. The AAM publishes The Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians ten times annually.
