The singing of hymns is a prominent constituent of worship services in the Church of England, as it is in the services of most denominations.   It is one feature of church life that draws the denominations together, for in their denominational hymnbooks they make free use of one another’s hymns. E.g. in the most recent edition of the Baptist Hymnal, a present-day Anglican bishop is the third most represented author.   The first two are Charles Wesley, a Methodist, and Isaac Watts, a Congregationalist.
