HymnStanzas are accompaniments for the pianist and harpist who want to expand their hymn playing. These arrangements are compatible with most hymnals, and follow the 4 part harmonization found in most hymns.
These arrangements will work in any situation in which you play from a hymnal, such as Worship services, Senior Citizen and Nursing Home Programs, Youth Camps, etc. Other performance possibilities; piano solos combining 2 or more verses or combine 2 or more of the hymns into a medley.
Typically, each file contains 4 or 5 verses. Three of the verses will work with congregations and/or choirs that sing the standard SATB parts. The 4th verse contains alternate harmonization, and should be used when the vocals are sung in unison. In many of the hymns, I also include a solo verse. This verse is intended for use as a Call to Prayer, Moments of Meditation, etc.
I’m starting with 14 hymns, and I’ve tried to include some of the most popular and widely sung hymns. I plan to have offer at least 25 hymns by the end of the year.

I encourage you to email me with suggestions for hymns you would like to see made available. Right now I’m arranging Public Domain hymns, which means I don’t have to have certain licenses to use the hymns. If I have enough requests to include more Contemporary Christian material, I will consider arranging them if I have enough requests to warrant obtaining the proper license.
For the time being, I can only accept personal checks and money orders. Soon I will be able to offer credit card purchases. The cost of each hymn file is $1.00. As I mentioned above, each file will contain at least 4 verses.
