Hymns for Singing CDs

A solution for the Church, Organisation or Home
that does not have a musician or instrument.

Each tune has the number of verses for the most commonly used words.

The arrangements consist of Organ, String Quartet and Solo Instruments.
Each verse has a different combination of instruments; no two verses are alike.

There is no singing on these CDs; only music. This means that the tunes can be used for other hymns that have the same 'metre' - number of syllables per line - bearing in mind the number of verses played.

The arranger has been an Organist for 50 years,
playing both pipe and electronic instruments.
This experience has been used in the creation of these CDs.

Note: In order to get the best from these CDs it is a good idea to practice singing
with them by a group of people who can sing. Some discipline is required to follow
the music. It also helps if the equipment is of good quality to bring out the bass notes.
If you wish to hear a particular track please advise and I will send you a few bars.

Benefits of a CD are:

  • Excellent stereo sound quality.
  • Will not wear out or stretch.
  • No searching for the required hymn.
  • Just dial the track number and press play.
  • Easy storage
