Our 2005 edition (piano only) is available in 300 hymn titles. Listen to a sample montage of our 2005 edition. Prices are marked down because it will be discontinued and replaced by a new 2018 edition where all 300 will be available in separate new volumes of 25 hymn titles. In fact, the first and second volumes of 2018 edition are available now. Listen to our 2018 edition audio sample montages: Piano Only, Organ With Piano, and Organ Only.
The 2005 edition is available in two volumes of 150 hymns, 6 discs per volume, 25 hymns per disc for a total of 300 hymns. The 2018 edition is eventually replacing the 2005 edition. Right now for the 2018 edition we have just two volumes of 25 hymns ready, for a total of 50 hymns. More are on the way until all 300 can replace the 2005 edition.
The hymn titles are in alphabetical order on the discs and are printed on the back of the CD cases showing the track number, making it easy for you to select the disc and CD track. Play the CDs in a CD player, whether a portable one, a stereo system, one that's hooked into a church sound system, a computer that has a CD ROM drive and speakers or a computer that has a CD ROM that's hooked up to a sound system.
You may "rip" the CDs to your computer so that you can burn your own CDs for use in your services. For example, if in advance, you know which hymns you're going to use in a particular service, you would then be able to create a music CD selecting only those hymns in order so that you don't have to change out discs during the service. They would be on your burned disc in the order you selected for the play list of your burned disc.
Even if you are not computer savvy, our hymn downloads make it easy for you to manage the songs and organize them into playlists for your services. You can even copy and move the downloaded files around as needed for your convenience. After ordering, your order confirmation is sent to you by email which includes a "Download Files" link. From the email message, click on the link and it brings you to a special page to download zip files to your Windows PC. NOTE: If you are downloading from an iPad or iPhone, we recommend iZip, a free app from the Apple Store for downloading and extracting zipped files. After downloading, open/extract the zip files on your computer and access the hymns right on your computer as needed. You will need high speed Internet access to download. Each zip file is 60 to 98MB in size.
The download files are in order as they appear on each CD. You may copy and move them around as needed for use in your ministry.
Available on a Thumb (USB Flash) Drive
Don't want to mess with CDs or with downloading? Order them pre-loaded on a flash drive. The 8GB USB 2.0 flash drive will contain all of the MP3 files that we'll mail to you. Plug the flash drive into your computer's USB port and you'll immediately be able to access the hymns in your selection for Piano, Organ or Piano Played With Organ Together. NOTE: If you order more than one volume of hymns on flash drive, we'll just combine them and put them on the same single flash drive for your convenience. If, however, you would like separate drives for separate volumes, then let us know in your order comments field during checkout so that we can do that for you.
How to Play the MP3 Files on your Computer
When you open the folder(s) containing the hymn mp3 files, you should see the songs listed in alphabetical order inside the folder. If you double-click on the song it should begin to play on your computer's default media player software such as Windows Media Player. Make sure your sound and speakers are on.
If you'd like to create short play lists to organize the songs in order for use in the service you can create a playlist in Windows Media Player. This is located in the right-hand side of Windows Media Player. With Windows Media Player open and your folders containing the hymns open, you can click on the hymn you want to use, and with your mouse, drag the song into the "Drag items here to create a playlist" section in Windows Media Player. When you release your mouse button, the song will appear in the playlist in WMP. Do this for each song and then in WMP you can click and drag the songs up or down to change the order of them that you're planning to use in your service. In WMP, save your playlist. When it comes time to play them in your service, use Windows Media Player and play the songs in your selected play list at the right times.
