Description

Singing the Great Hymns will

  • nourish your children’s minds with beautiful thoughts of God.
  • teach your children sound doctrine in a simple, easy-to-remember way.
  • preserve a rich heritage of faith-filled, inspiring words from godly men and women.
  • encourage your whole family to form a delightful habit of praise!

This collection of great hymns makes it easy to do hymn study. Singing a great hymn just once or twice a week will gently introduce the lyrics and music in a memorable, meaningful way. Simply select one hymn to sing together until everyone has learned each stanza. Six hymns are included for each of twelve school years (plus a handful of patriotic classics), giving your children the treasure of more than 70 beautiful hymns in their hearts and minds.

With Singing the Great Hymns, you receive all of these helpful resources.

  • An instrumental audio recording of every hymn, so you can hear the tune or enjoy a simple piano accompaniment to your singing.
  • Sheet music for each hymn, so you and your children can practice reading music or play along.
  • A comprehensive collection of lyrics, so you can enjoy the richness of all the stanzas or select your favorites to learn.

“The singing of hymns at home and of the hymns and canticles in church should be a special delight.”—Charlotte Mason

Experience the special delight of the great hymns of the faith!

11 reviews for Singing the Great Hymns

  1. Just a question. If ordering the PDF format, does that include MP3 audio downloads instead of the CD?

    • Yes, the PDF download includes the audio tracks in MP3 format.

  2. Hi, the sample download is a zip file and I don’t have a program to unzip. Any chance of individual samples files being placed on the site?

    • The sample file is a zip for ease of download because it includes three of the audio tracks along with the PDF sample book. You can install a free unzip app called 7-Zip to open the sample if you don’t have another unzip program installed.

  3. What a great resource! You’ve done the work for organizing hymn study for me – thank you! Does the CD/MP3 provide musical accompaniment for all the verses provided for each hymn in the book, or just for one verse of each hymn?

    • The accompaniment track is for one verse. We decided to do it that way because some of the hymns in the book have a large number of verses (10 or more) and you may not want to sing all of them. You should be able to loop the audio track for as many verses as you’d like to sing.

  4. Does the CD also have a sung version of the hymn for to help with those that are not familiar?

    • The accompaniment track is of the tune only in a simple arrangement so that the melody is easy to hear. It’s designed so that you can sing along with it.

  5. Do you have a list of the songs included?

    • Yes, check page 5 of the free sample for the table of contents.

  6. Does it include biographical sketches of the hymn writers?

    • We wanted to make the focus on the hymns themselves so biographies aren’t included, but you can certainly add a biography of the hymn writer if you like.

  7. I wanted to find out if the music files are piano or MIDI files, if piano what is the source of the music? Thank you.

    • The music files were made with MIDI software, using a piano instrument created from high-quality piano recordings.

  8. 5 out of 5

    This is definitely something I bought for the convenience of having everything together in one place and I am not disappointed. It makes hymn study easy and I love that thy include all the verses even when different churches leave some out.

  9. Jordan…
    I have been looking all over for a list of songs in this book. Can you provide? Is there a place to find this?

    Thank you,
    Renee Gould

    • The free sample includes the full table of contents, which is a list of every hymn included in the book.

  10. 5 out of 5

    This is another fabulous resource. We are adopting this for our CM co-op’s use in Matins. Now, I need not spend several hours each year tracking down clear, simple sheet music and corresponding music for the group. I just ordered 21 copies! Thank you, SCM!

  11. Is the pdf format text & music compatible with an iPad?

    • Yes, you can use the e-book edition on an iPad. You may have to download the files onto a computer, then transfer them to your iPad through iTunes sync. That’s because the audio files are delivered in a zip file to make it easier to download, but iPads don’t open zip files without an additional app.
