Thánh Ca Dân Chúa
The first to include English and bilingual songs
Many parishes in the U.S. and Canada have multicultural assemblies with significant numbers of Vietnamese speakers, but lack the resources to properly worship in Vietnamese. Finally there's a hymnal that celebrates the rich cultural and spiritual heritage of the Vietnamese Catholic community!
Provides chords for accompaniment and selected choral parts
A groundbreaking resource, Thánh Ca Dân Chúa (Hymnal of God's People) is the first Vietnamese hymnal to contain popular English songs for worship, chords for accompaniment, selected choral parts, the newly approved Vietnamese Order of Mass, and more.
