Commonly Known Hymns, Songs and Chants
Here is a list of many common hymns and songs in English, with a small number that include Spanish or Latin. Please check off the melodies familiar to your parishioners. Check the tune name in parentheses, in case you know the melody but not the text. These titles are taken from "top 100" lists taken from surveys by NPM and other organizations, so there are, no doubt, a number of good songs and hymns you use that aren't listed here. Please enter those in the appropriate box below. Also, please enter songs of the Holy Spirit, to assist us in our planning for diocesan confirmation liturgies.
