Previous studies of LDS hymnody have generally left out the Reorganization movement. Clothier compares the eight major hymnals published by the RLDS Church (Community of Christ), including their current version which was published in 1981. LDS hymnals have generally been based on Brigham Young's Manchester hymnal while RLDS hymnals have been patterned after Emma Smith's 1841 collection of hymns. Clothier includes many of the hymns used by the Reorganization.
