Now Sings My Soul~Audio

This page offers audio samples of the hymns and faith songs that appear in Now Sings My Soul: New Songs for the Lord. The titles are numbered as they are numbered in the book. The tune names (usually in ALL CAPS) are listed too.

Most of the settings are classic hymn tunes. The term “alt.” after a tune name indicates that the tune has been altered from its previously published version. If you’d like to hear the original source tunes, learn about their history and composer, or find other texts which have been set to them, go to Hymnary.org. Copy and paste the tune name into the Tune Name search box. If more than one comes up, look for the one with the composer listed below. Enjoy exploring that wonderful online resource!

The MIDI and MP3 files are instrumental playbacks of one or two verses from the digital scores published in Now Sings My Soul (plus a few extra settings, for which PDF scores are provided). MIDI files are generally much smaller than MP3 files, but the sound quality may be different. Choose whichever suits your purposes.

The MuseScore piano playbacks tend to pound more heavily than a human pianist would. Other instrumental settings (usually oboe, guitar, or strings) were used in some of the playbacks for variety. Choose whatever instrumentation suits the song and your musical assets.

The YouTube videos feature vocal performances by talented singers including soprano Theresa Olin and tenor Tony Villecco. The lyrics may differ slightly from the final versions published in Now Sings My Soul.
