Then Sings My Soul Book 3 by Robert J. Morgan is the last in a trilogy. This book is broken down into the following four parts:
Part I: The History of Hymnody
Part II: Do You Know These Hymns?
Part III: Six Hymn Stories I Love to Tell
Part IV: Hymning in Private and in Public
This book is very interesting as it tells the stories behind many hymns from ancient to modern times. While I was not familiar with many of the hymns in this book, I still enjoyed learning about how they came into existence. I especially enjoyed Part III of the book where the author provides further information about the hymn “It is Well with My Soul”. Previously I had only heard part of how this song came into existence. It was very interesting to learn the rest of the story.
I would definitely recommend this book. A few years ago I had given a copy of the first in the trilogy series away as a gift. The gift recipient expressed how much she loved the book. She told me that she enjoyed reading the stories behind her favorite hymns and then played the hymns on her piano. The author brilliantly included the music in the book and to this day that book is still sitting on her piano. I know Book 3 will make another great gift! Enjoy!
