Thanks for this helpful list. Are you going to do the same for the rest of the historic one-year lectionary? If so, perhaps consider posting it at http://historiclectionary.com/.

Thanks, Brother Mayes.

I've been working on hymns for the Historic Lectionary, yes, and I do plan to complete the entire year.

Those who are interested can check out my suggestions, thus far, for the 6th through 27th Sundays after Holy Trinity: See the "Hymnody" section on the left side of my blog, and look to the bottom of that list of posts.

I'd be pleased to share my efforts with the brothers at the historic lectionary site, but I've not been clear on how to go about doing that. Any help?

Just talk to Todd Peperkorn.
