"Celebremos su Gloria": An Excellent Spanish Hymnal!

May 10, 2013 — Leave a comment

I first began using Celebremos su Gloria by Librios Alianza/Celebremos about two years ago in a guitar class that I began teaching then at Iglesia Bautista Fundamental Tabernaculo in Greenville, SC. It is an excellent Spanish hymnal because it provides the following:

1. Music, words, and guitar chords (in both Spanish and English) for 652 songs that are divided into the following categories:

Nuestro Maravillos Dios

Nuestro Señor Jesucristo

Nuestro Divino Consolador

Nuestra Santa Biblia

Nuestra Grandiosa Salvaciόn

Nuestra Vida en Cristo

Nuestra Amada Iglesia

Nuestro Glorios Futuro

Nuestros Grupos y Ocasiones Especiales

Nuestro Culto

Having the guitar chords for all the songs in the hymnal makes this a uniquely valuable book among my hymnals because it is the only hymnal that I have that does so. This resource has been a great help in my teaching all my guitar students.

2. An excellent introductory section Disfrute Su Himnario that explains how to enjoy your hymnal by understanding these features in each song:

Symbolos; Pasajes Biblicos; Matiz; Transiciόn; Duraciόn; Punto Resaltado; Reconocimientos; Derechos Reservados; Versiculo Lema; Respuesta Musical; Acordes Para La Guitarra; Tonada; Tonalidad; Introduccion Instrumental

3. Many other innovative features designed to help you delight yourself:

Deléitese Con Estas Novedades: 32 páginas a color, poesías, reflexiones doctrinales, lecturas bíblicas integradas en cada secciόn, indices, gráfica de acordes para la guitarra, anécdotas biográficas y de inspiraciόn, música hispana y universal, e himnos y cánticos de ayer y hoy.

4. A very helpful explanation of symbols used in the hymnal: Explicaciόn de Los Símbolos. This section is excellent for learning many Spanish musical terms.

5. A Table of Contents that lists the ten sections of the hymnal (listed above in point one), the subsections in each section, and information about the subsections of section eleven Nuestro Himnario, an extensive collection of indices.

6. A superb ending section Nuestro Himnario that includes Informaciόn general and a collection of twenty-two indices that provides a vast wealth of information about the songs in the hymnal:

Dibjuos y fotografías
Índice de dueños
Índice de autores y compositores
Índice de notas biográficas
Índice anécdotas histόricas
Índice de lecturas antifonales
Índice de citas de lecturas antifonales

This superb hymnal is available for purchase online at amazon.com: Celebremos su Gloria. I praise God for leading one of my students to give me a new hardbound spiral copy of this hymnal last night in our guitar class!
