The CMI Library

The Library also contains scholarly books on theology and worship, church music, hymnody, indexes for worship planning, hymn selection guides, old and new denominational hymnbooks and companions to the hymnals, and a variety of teaching instruction books on such topics as vocal technique and English diction.
  • The eLibrary On-line Catalogue gives access to the anthems contained in the Library.
  • The eLibrary On-line Catalogue allows the user to find anthems that meet specific needs such as level of difficulty, passage of scripture, lectionary readings for Sundays and feast days in the three-year liturgical cycle, worship emphases (i.e., stewardship), and other search interests.
