Join with us and fellow Presbyterians in celebrating worship and song through our new hymn sing program, Many Voices, One Song. All Presbyterians are encouraged to sing the same song in worship on the same day.
Please take pictures and video of your congregation singing, then email files to Rev. Meg Flannagan (Hymnal Advocacy & Relations Coordinator). We will use the video online to promote the Many Voices, One Song events.
Here is a schedule of songs to be sung in our Many Voices, One Song sing-along. All references to the sampler refer to the 2012 sampler. We also have accompaniment versions of some of these, noted below. To download accompaniment editions, please click here.
