WELS Hymnal Project

Studies in Lutheran Chorales

Between the years 1961 and 1997 a series of essays by Hilton Oswald appeared in The Lutheran School Bulletin, the predecessor to The Lutheran Educator. The collection of 47 essays is unique for its contribution in the English language to the understanding of German Lutheran hymns. On the pages of this collection of essays Oswald urges Lutherans to understand and appreciate the treasure of German Lutheran hymnody that we have inherited. The WELS Hymnal Project presents this document, newly formatted and digitized, for useful study in WELS and beyond.
