Melodies in Our Heart

Here you can access some files which reflect a publishing effort which has been going on for about 15 years. One hymnal has been published under the title Melodies in Our Heart. I’ve been able to accumulate more material for a second publication. Now all I have to do is whip up the energy / enthusiasm. We’ll see. . . In the mean time, I hope you will find things that will be refreshing.

ReaderIn order to view and play these files you will need to use a Finale Reader, a freeware reader by Finale. Also these files are accessible through the fine musical notation programs available through FinaleMusic. I’m not certain if the shapenote font, EngraverFontExtras, is available in all of Finale Music’s programs. I assume it is.

  1. Louis, do you have a song called “Precious Jesus” in your collection that isn’t published? I have only one copy and I was hoping to find it in your safe keeping.
    I appreciate any help you can give me.
    In Him,

  2. Louis,
    I am thinking about undertaking the task of converting these .mus files into power points to be used on projection systems. I tried using power points to lead the song service last night and the difference in singing when everyone is looking up is absolutely amazing. We are planning on doing some things with this for the 2014 Two Week meeting. What is your e-mail? I will send you a few once I work it out to get your comments. Anyway, I had some problems downloading some of the files here:

    49 His Majesty: it has the wrong link but I guessed the correct link and got the file
    61 Ask of Me
    74 Abraham
    77 Crucified
    83 We Praise the Lord
    Cherris: Heaven’s Shores
    Steve W: Day is at Hand
