Features of 1000 Christmas Hymns

See hymns on your screen exactly as they will print. Functionality includes:

  •   Traditional SATB 4 part harmony as found in the physical hymnals or melody only;
  •   Transpose to any key;
  •   Scale the music and/or verses to almost any size and quickly reformat;
  •   Re-order verses and/or delete any verses --- display/print just the verses you want;
  •   Lead sheets;
  •   Chord names or guitar fret diagrams or none;
  •   Verses under the notes or after the hymn in 1 or 2 column format;
  •   Print the music as a chord chart in any key;
  •   Export verses only to an ascii (text) file;
  •   Display the music using shape notes or standard round noteheads;
  •   Display a hymn using either mixed single and double stemming, or using only single stemmed notation.

And when playing,

  •   Change tempos and specify number of times to repeat playing;
  •   Specify different general MIDI instruments for the treble and bass clefs;
  •   When playing a hymn more than once, specify different instruments to be used for each repetition (much like when an organist changes the organ stops at the beginning of each stanza);
  •   Save hymns as MIDI files which then can be played later or imported into a sequencing program for further manipulation.
