A treasure store of hymns and tunes
What a great resource this has turned out to be.
I can now sing all my own favourite hymns or learn new ones, or even learn new tunes to old hymns. This is a great encouragement for bringing more praise into each day and for bringing to bear the hard earned truths and heartfelt emotions of centuries of hymns into my own trials and joys.
Furthermore, I discovered I’m able to use this app to bring these hymns to a small service we hold for elderly residents in a care home.
I’ve also found use for the app when our usual musicians are away or unwell so the ministers can still have the hymns they need for the service. I’m easily able to stand in with my phone and a speaker to hand to provide the music to sing to.
The music can either be streamed (electronic music files) or downloaded (mp3 files of recorded music). Each provides an intro piece before the hymn and the electronic version can be altered in tone or in tempo to suit the singer/s. A few of these electronic tunes have faults (eg. ‘All Things Bright and Beautiful’ plays the chorus twice between verses) so it’s worthwhile listening through them before using them. The downloadable mp3 files have no such faults. Unfortunately, because they’re recorded music the downloaded version can’t be adjusted for tone or tempo. I don’t think I’ve yet found that I haven’t been able to use one or the other though for any hymns we’ve wanted to sing.
Copy and paste?
I like to include hymns in my blog posts. I bought it because I was hoping to copy and paste to save typing. Is this possible?
Nothing in free version
Before I purchase the full version I’d like to know what sort of hymns are there. Any hymn I click shows a message asking to upgrade to full version. There’s no easy way to play the free ones. Am I supposed to click on all hundreds of tracks to find the one that’s free?
