How can you use the MP3 Christian Hymns?
The MP3 files are essentially music files that can be played on
a computer or MP3 player. They are intended to be used with a
copy of the hymnbook. There are many uses for the MP3 version of
Christian Hymns. Here are some examples:
- For uses in churches
without a musician
There are many smaller churches who do not have anyone to
play a piano or other instrument. Now there is no longer any
need to sing unaccompanied! Simply load the complete
hymnbook onto an MP3 player - such as an Apple iPod, and
play using speakers (such as the ones shown in the picture)
or through the PA system. Any hymn can be chosen!
- For personal devotions
Why not sing a hymn as part of your private devotions, or
with your family. Choose any hymn, and use your copy of the
hymnbook to sing along. The MP3 files can be played on any
computer or MP3 player.
- For small or house groups
Want to sing a hymn at a small group meeting - for example a
ladies' coffee morning? No problem. Bring along some
hymnbooks, your MP3 player and a small external speaker then
anyone in the group can choose any hymn.
- To help in choosing of hymns
Do you have to choose hymns for a service, but you cannot
play an instrument. Simply use your computer or MP3 player
to listen to the tunes for the hymns. This will help you
choose the best tune for each hymn.
- For musicians to practice with
Are you part of a music group that plays at meetings. Now
you can practice your instrument at home using the MP3
We are sure that there will be many other uses!
