Hymn of the Month: January – Mary! How Sweetly Falls That Word

As part of my series on Catholic hymns, I have chosen a favorite hymn of mine, Mary! How Sweetly Falls That Word. This is a beautiful hymn that honors the Holy Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Take a few moments to read about the author and composer of this beautiful Catholic hymn and be sure to share this story with all your friends.


Treasured old hymns

You give a very thorough coverage of a hymn's history, complete with sheet music images and sound files. Really good job.

I see that the St. Mary's Church where you sang was in Akron, Ohio. I sang at St. Mary's in St. Paul, MN, for a dozen years.

I have dozens of old hymnals that I have collected over the years. I will enjoy bookmarking the songs you feature in these old songbooks.

Thanks for posting this in the Forum section of TCS. This is an underutilized area for discussion. Maybe we can revive it.
