FreeHymnal posts 1000th Hymn
After several months of design work, I launched FreeHymnal.com in January 2010. In the announcement, here, I discussed the need for such a site; many hymn sites have lyrics or lyrics and MIDI files. For a church musician actually looking for sheet music for public domain hymns, though, the alternatives are far more limited.
I remain involved in the technical administration of the website, but Levi Johnston has stepped forward to oversee most of the day-to-day operations. He posted the site’s 1000th hymn yesterday. (The hymn was Fanny Crosby’s Gladly We Will Go, and was not specifically selected for the occasion.)
A new hymn is posted each day, so with every day, the site becomes an increasingly valuable resource for church musicians.
