This is a collection of simple Midi files for a number of hymns we might uses in our services. It is provided as a resource for musicians in the Parish. Apart from clicking on them to hear the tune as a reminder, you can save a file on your computer for loading into your favourite software, e.g. to transpose for your instrument, or to assist in learning your part. More suggestions about software at the foot of the page.
