A new hymn book sent to Australia!

We recently completed and dispatched to Australia the latest melody hymn book for Frensham School.

The school was established in 1913 and is based in New South Wales. It’s one of Australia’s most respected independent boarding and days schools for girls.

This new book is a reprint of their original melody hymn book, with each new edition having amends and tweaks along the way. In 2013 we produced a special edition for the school as part of their centenary celebrations.

Michael Spencer, Head of Music at the school said

It was a revelation to find that we could, quite affordably, create our own hymn book with the help of Gresham Books. The Frensham Hymn Book now has 140 hymns and carols – just the ones that we enjoy and find meaningful in our Morning Prayers and annual Carol Service. Gresham Books have been endlessly patient when we’ve asked for changes with each new edition over the years. The final product is of the highest quality to read and handle.’

It’s fair to say we are really pleased that a book put together in our Isle of Wight studio has travelled all the way to Australia and is being enjoyed by all at the school.
