Haarlemsche Bundels are hymnbooks of the Mennonite Congregation of Haarlem. There are a number of Haarlemsche Bundels: (1) Liederen en Gezangen (Haarlem, n.d., 1713). This hymnbook was a reprinted and enlarged edition of the Oude Liederen of 1684, a songbook used in Amsterdam. In this Haarlem edition a number of Psalms were replaced by versions rhymed by various poets as Vondel, Hooft, Westerbaen, Rooleeuw. It had since 1729 also been in use in de Rijp. It was reprinted at Haarlem in 1756, 1763, and 1776. This 1776 edition, which was also in use in the Remonstrant Church of Rotterdam, was given a somewhat modified title. (2) Christelijke gesungen en Liederen (Haarlem, 1804), usually called Oude (Old) Haarlemsche Bündel. (3) Christelijke Kerkgezangen (Amsterdam, 1851). (4) Doopsgezinde Liederen (Haarlem, 1895), known as Nieuwe (New) Haarlemsche Bündel. Nos. 2, 3, and 4 were also used in some other Mennonite congregations. All these songbooks are now out of use, having been replaced in 1945 by the Doopsgezinde Bündel.
