Thanks, Pastor Stuckwisch! I've directed a guy named Bob Anderson to check out your hymn suggestions. He has requested suggestions for hymns to include in his "better noises" instructional CD. As i understand it, he's planning to provide CDs that will help train choirs who can't read music to sing LSB hymns.
