Catholic Encyclopedia: Hymnody and Hymnology

http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/07596a.htm

Hymnody means exactly "hymn song", but as the hymn-singer as well as the hymn-poet are included under (hymnodos), so we also include under hymnody the hymnal verse or religious lyric. Hymnology is the science of hymnody or the historico-philogical investigation and aesthetic estimation of hymns and hymn writers.
