You need the full music and words edition, otherwise you will just get the melody line.

Thank you ever so much Richard.

I have ordered the New Hymnal through Amazon.

Your help is very precious.

After one evening of reading Apple's choral, I now sightread with voices that sing separetely. This is really such a rich experience.

Actually Benedict, there are many advantages to learning hymn after hymn after hymn. There is something about playing "in chords" as an accompaniment. There is a totally different technique that once learned is beneficial to all playing. The songs are so short,and readable' they provide excellent sight reading skills' practice - and in different keys.

In most of my indeces (is that the correct Latin plural for index?) the original "tunes" are listed and all the songs that sprung from those tunes are under the heading. For instance the "Love Divine,,,,," was originally Hyfrydol. "Tunes" that have been sung repeatedly by different congregations and with different words have the most entries. They have withstood the test of time and might be worth learning first. i.e. "The Old Hundredth" spawned hundreds of praise hymns. Many of those "tunes" were written or transcribed by original master composers.

Can you tell I like church music? I do. Hope you have fun. See if there is "Finlandia" by Sibelius. I love that melody.

No, apple, indeces is not the Latin plural of index; indices is (i, not e, after the d). But indexes is probably the more common spelling used among speakers of English.

(I'm a retired editor, and one of the jokes in our office was that we probably should write the plural of Kleenex as Kleenices.)

Where would I find the hymn that you sent to benedict? I like chords, too....

in your mailbox! (it seemed indeces was spelled wrong) Would you believe I took 4 yrs. of Latin? My father taught it and we actually spoke it at the dinner table when we were little. (we spoke, my father corrected)

I laughed when I read that, because my grandparents were Russian, and they taught my brothers and me to say "I'm going to wash" and "I'm going to bed," both of which caused them and their friends to burst out with laughter and applause when we said them. I'm not sure to this day if it was because little Americans were speaking passable Russian, or if it was really that we spoke it so badly, but I did love the applause!

Thanks, apple, for the music, and for including the "Ode to Joy."

And thanks, too, to virtuoso_735 and shantinik. I hadn't looked at my Czerny for almost 50 years, and there are some nice chord practices there; and as to the Rachmaninoff, I used to play that prelude when I was young -- I'll have to dig that music out, too.
