Texts have been revised by editors since songs were first written. Let us sing chant unaccompanied and in unison. However, my biggest complaint with New Century is taking the inclusive language too far, and the UCC church I used to attend used this hymnal.

    The same editors that correct Milton's poetry don't raise the leading tone on modal tunes. Do you remember it? There are however, to the New Century's Credit, some inclusive language choices that are respectable. The appointment, he said, had given him an insight into good and bad church music. I know a great deal of time and money went into the production of this hymnal, and many of the people involved are long-time friends and colleagues of mine.
