Hymns for the 29th Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year A (22 October 2017)

A selection of  hymn  and song suggestions, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the twenty ninth Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year A.

Most are free-to-use (ie public domain or copyright-free), so the words can be copied and sung to at least one tune with no concerns about copyright or performance licensing - sometimes in a limited setting.  Many of these hymns are old / traditional - but where possible a variety of styles and genres are included.

A small selection of hymns which may still be copyright is also included, for items which are particularly relevant.
