Request A New Recording
At Hymns Without Words we are always trying to expand the number of hymns with have available for download. There are thousands of hymns and new ones appear almost daily, so please add your request and we will try and create a suitable accompaniment for your singing. Recordings are made by Hymns Without Words founder and composer: Richard M S Irwin.
There may be reasons why we cannot always complete a recording, for example, for hymns where the composer’s work is still in copyright (music comes into the Public Domain in the UK 70 years after the death of the composer). In these cases we have to get permission from the copyright holder, which can sometimes take a long time, and in some cases it is refused.
New Recording Instrumentation
Not every work is suitable for the Church Organ and so if you want your new recording to use different instruments, please let us know.
New Recording Of A New Work
One of the other things we are proud of is creating a platform for new hymnwriters to have their hymns recorded and made available to our worldwide audience. So if you are, or know a budding hymnwriter who wants to be recorded, please still include your request. Some of our better known new hymnwriters include: Colin Gordon-Farleigh, Greg Scheer, Hugh George Wetmore, Michael Lindsay Forster, Stephen G Brown and Verna Penn Moll.
