Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Scored for Organ

"Organ? You want me to play the organ? You mean I'll need to play the pedals for hymn singing?" Himself a pianist turned organist, the gifted Lani Smith offers this practical collection to aid those pianists who find themselves making this plaintive cry. Lani has selected widely used praise hymns and notated them based on a clever trick-set up a 16' combination on the Great manual and use it to play the bass line by itself while the right hand plays all the other notes on the Swell. Designed exclusively for congregational singing, most hymns are presented in three versions: the version just described; a second version that offers the possibility of a contrasting stanza to be played with both hands on the Swell; and a free harmonization to be reserved for the final stanza, thus adding a little "lift" to the singing. Employ this collection-and a little practice, of course--and you'll be able to proudly call yourself The Church Organist in no time!
