CATHOLIC HYMNS IN TUNES
TONIC SOL - FA EDITION
A compilation based on suggested tunes in the Ghanaian Catholic
Compiled and Edited By Kojo Frimpong
Much effort has been made to trace the owners of compositions, and copyright
material, but I could not identify the composers of some pieces. I do hope that no
copyright has been infringed. If, however, the contrary is the case, I ask for pardon
and render an unqualified apology, and I would appreciate it, if such was brought
to my notice.

This book is dedicated is dedicated to all the choirs I have been associated with,
(Pax Romana Choir, University Of Ghana, St. Thomas Aquinas Youth Choir, and
Marian Youth Choir, Adenta,) they are the inspiration for the compilation of this
Right from the days when I started teaching choirs, I always wondered if there was
a book I could find all the tunes I needed to teach my choir as far as the Ghanaian
Catholic Hymnal was concerned. For so long I had to research into so many hymnals to find the appropriate tunes for songs in the Catholic Hymnal.
I had a great relief when in 2008, I was handed a compilation of tunes from the
Catholic Hymnal by Prof. J. F. Wiredu and later in 2011, a revised compilation by
Mr. T. N. K. Amegbo of OLAMS, Tema.
Taking a cue from the Methodists, I knew a Tonic Sol-fa edition of this compilation
would be beneficial to both Choirmasters and Choristers to learn and sing with
In 2012, after some consultations with some colleagues in the Ministry, I decided
to start this project and after three failed attempts, I finally had my breakthrough
and this project has seen the light of day.
“Catholic Hymns In Tunes” is a compilation based on suggested tunes and
a few added ones in the Ghanaian Catholic Hymnal transcribed into Tonic Sol-fa
notation for the benefit of all who appreciate music and wish to sing it the right
Omitted hymns in this compilation were deliberate since I couldn’t locate the appropriate tunes in any of my research materials. However, I am responsible for
every error and omission found in this compilation.
I thank the Almighty God for entrusting me and granting me his Divine will to
come out with this compilation.
I also wish to show appreciation to all those who helped and encouraged me with
their inspiration, knowledge and guidance.
I owe a depth of gratitude to Prof. John F. Wiredu and Kwame Senaanu Amegbo
for providing me with the initial data for this project, and also to all the members
of the Sibelius Online Forum for the technical assistance.
I am very much grateful to Joyce Duku and Emmanuel Amissah for their constant
support to type and edit the draft, and lastly to Richmond Y. Norteye for all the
My appreciation will be deficient if I fail to acknowledge the great musicians and
composers whose copyright works were used in this compilation.
May God richly bless you all.
