A wonderful hymn resource

Check out! It is a wonderful resource for church hymns. They have organ and piano mp3s for download as well as voice recordings and sheet music. A few classical numbers are included for preludes as well as the Healy Willan service music. Most of the offerings are public domain, but there are a few copyrighted tunes for purchase as well. The organ sounds great, by the way. Here are a few of my favorites:

The creator of the site is Clyde McLennan, a pastor and software designer in Perth, Australia. He has served in a number of small churches. The stated purpose of the site is to "make good quality accompaniments for congregational singing available at no cost (or minimal cost in the case of copyrighted music).

Wow, what a wonderful site, thank you Father. Since crossing the Tiber I confess (if I may use that word!) what I miss more than anything else are well-played and well-sung hymns. This site provides the first and I can pretend to do the second; not the real thing but at least a reasonable facsimile.
