Hymn Accompaniments

 

Piano accompaniment for most of the hymns found in the Trinity Hymnal.  These are designed to encourage a group to sing some of the great hymns of the church even though resources to accompany the singing may be lacking.  The accompaniments are unadorned in order that the focus might be on the texts.  For the same reason the accompaniments are unhurried.  It is our conviction that in many hymn-singing churches the accompaniments are played so fast that the congregation struggles just to sing the words, leaving little time for even momentary reflection on the meaning of the texts.  Of course, it is possible to err in the opposite direction.  We have sought to adjust the tempo of each song to avoid either extreme.
