This is fairly new on CP and ought to get out quickly given the broad appeal re: denominations ... so let's see a push towards production.

I'd like to know more about how the music notation will look, and how many of those hymns actually have notation.

They're missing Mennonite hymns, but I'm a hymnal collector in RL, so of course I'm in on this.

What would be cool is if these were supplied with MIDI files, too. I don't see that it's mentioned, though. However, there are several programs that can convert; I wonder if any of them can run in batch mode.

This is closing Friday this week. Current price at $25. The $21 mark is looking very achievable. Even $17 is not entirely out of reach, but that might be wishful thinking...

Nobody knows about the musical notation piece of these as Logos resources? Are we bidding only on collections of hymn words?

The product information page seems to indicate that this resource is being handled differently than earlier hymnbook resources.

in the past the resource only had lyrics and midi files

Product description for this resource includes NOTATION, but no mention of MIDI

Sample pages of the individual resources in the collection reveals these are scans of old pages.

Thanks, David. I think you're right. I'll assume for now that the notation will be a graphic. But it doesn't matter; I've upped my bid to be included and if it doesn't meet expectations, then FL has a gracious return policy!

Thank you, Jan. And MJ for the earlier notice.

The volume Zion's Hymns, a Watts follow-up, caught my eye (vs the Hymns of Zion), and so I ended up checking in the older Dictionary of Hymnology. If interested, 2 pdfs, etc:

I have the Dictionary of Hymnology in print. Ordered it used after taking a class on hymnology and finding it mentioned as the classic reference guide to hymns. It's great, though obviously very dated (it's from 1907). But I later bought it in Logos format when I saw it was available.

 I forgot that I had this in Logos too. It will be interesting using it with these new resources.

I hope it gets retagged to link to the music for hymns mentioned in it.

I am a mega hymn nerd. I am guessing there aren't a whole lot of churches that still sing hymns or people who study them, but it would be an area I'd love to see Faithlife expand into more, though I am guessing there wouldn't be any money in it so they probably won't/shouldn't. My go-to resources are the Cyber Hymnal and hymnary.org.

Another resource that Faithlife should consider getting is The Canterbury Dictionary of Hymnology which is "the public launch of the ‘impossible task’ – the replacement for the Dictionary of Hymnology produced by John Julian in 1892, with a supplement in 1907." It's a subscription-based resource, though, at £25/yr. So I'm not sure how they'd be able to pull that off.

I often describe myself as "a hymn guy" lost in a Praise and Worship World.
