Many thanks go to Mr Ken Shoemaker, director, Mr. Clint Porter, audio engineer, and the Cincinnati East volunteer chorale for all their efforts in making these recordings possible.
Please note that this recording is intended for those congregations with no pianist or very small attendance, who would appreciate hearing the extra voices as they sing along. While every effort was made to accurately reproduce the hymn vocals, some inconsistencies could not be avoided.

Download all the (191) UCG Hymn MP3 song files with each of the respective PowerPoint lyric slides, and wrapped in individual MP4 video files.

Hymnal: Instrumental Transpositions
You can download the transposed hymnal for various instruments here in pdf format. These are ‘generic’ versions, so some of the notes may not be in the proper range for your instrument even though it is the correct note. We are working on ‘instrument specific’ hymn transpositions so that soon there will be individual versions for saxophone, trumpet, trombone, clarinet, etc.
You can download one hymn or the entire hymnal. A high speed Internet connection is suggested for downloading the large files.
