Wanted: Hymn Proofreaders

I am pleased to announce that we have now published 230 free, downloadable hymns on our online hymn collection, which means that we are within just a few months from being ready to publish our print hymnal!

If you are curious, here is the final list of hymnal we intend to include in the print hymnal.

This is where we need your help: As we prepare the hymns for the hymnal, we need as many people as possible help us proofread the hymns. Lyrics, punctuation, capitalization, format, spacing, harmonization, spelling, notation–there are so many small details in producing hymns!

If you appreciate this free online resource and/or are looking forward to the publication of our hymnal, please consider helping. Download as many hymns as you can, read through them, look them over, sing through them, and email me with any corrections or suggestions you might have (saniol [at] gmail [dot] com).

No detail is too small. You think two words are too close together? Let me know. You think a chord sounds strange? Tell me. Anything you want to pass along can help us make sure these hymns are ready for print.

If you are really serious about helping us with proofreading hymns, contact me, and I might consider sending you hymns in bulk instead of you downloading each individual hymn from the site.

And who knows, if you send me enough corrections, we just might list your name in the hymnal credits as an official proofreader.
