We’re writing this email to a number of people who have asked for the Current Hymns booklet these past 4 years as well as to some others who enjoy music. If you’ve received a Current Hymns booklet, we hope you’re enjoying it!
It was 4 years ago when we completed the Current Hymns booklet project. We wondered if we’d ever get to the point of wanting to do another booklet or even if we should do another booklet. And so now, we’ve come to the point that we’d like to see if there are any more hymns “out there” that could be shared with the prospect of seeing about doing a 2nd Current Hymns booklet. If you have any hymns you would like to send our way, we’d be glad to consider them for the booklet. If you know of someone else who does, you could share this email with them.
Something that seems good to mention, is that this booklet is just an informal booklet of hymns that workers and friends have written. Many hymns are written and then kept in folders or piano benches, so this is a way to be able to share and enjoy them with others.
We would like to give some suggestions for sending in hymns:
Please limit it to 10 per person
· Original Music is preferred
· Existing music will be considered, but please find proof that it's not copyrighted (can check on cocatalog.locgov
· We need to know who the poet and composer or, or a way we can found out.
· At least one should be professing, that is either the poet or the composer
· Complete music in sheet music format please
· If you have chords, please add those
Please send in any hymns to email@example.com. The best way to send them would be in PDF format, or you can take a picture of them and send them that way. Please don't feel like you need to send a generic or chatty reply to this email. If everyone does, we will be overrun with emails!
Don Davidson, Emmy Nelson and helpers
