TOLEDO, Ohio, Aug. 29 /Christian Newswire/ -- Church music really sets the tone for solemn and celebratory occasions such as baptisms, first communions or Sunday Mass. But there are times when music is appropriate and sought-after but an organist or pianist is just not available. That's where HymnServe, a new web site that features downloadable hymn accompaniment, comes in.

Delivering traditional Christian hymns as well as praise and worship music online, Hymnserve is a convenient way to have both contemporary and popular traditional worship songs in any location, from a park or historic chapel in the country to a mission in central Africa. Some of the occasions you may use HymnServe include:

  • Church services in need of a pianist or organist
  • Religious retreats/Sunday school/Church camps
  • Outdoor and unusual wedding locations
  • First Communions/Confirmations/Baptisms
  • Memorials or Funeral Services
  • Outlying Missionaries

With accompaniments that are simple and sensitive, HymnServe, www.hymnserve.com, delivers traditional Christian music in a style that is comparable to the way you are accustomed to singing (the tempo has been carefully selected to fit the comfort of most congregations). The service also allows you to customize your own CDs, ensuring you get only the songs you want.

"Our music is ideal for supplying large and small groups with hymns and praise and worship music as well as hymn lyrics," said founder Elaine Johnson. "Whether you are looking for contemporary praise and worship music for young church members or traditional favorites for long-time members, HymnServe.com is the answer!"

The idea for HymnServe.com came to Elaine Johnson when she was a sales associate for a keyboard company in Anchorage, Alaska.

"One particular customer would come in the showroom when the new Yamaha digital piano models came out and would buy one to use at her church," She said. "Since the parishioner had a modest command at the piano, the manager asked me to record some hymns onto a floppy disc for her. This was so the congregation had specific worship music they could sing along with on Sunday. This became a weekly event and a fun project for me."

Every week the customer would call the store with a list of hymns and worship music the following Sunday and she would record them in the showroom. From this experience, she saw this as a way to help a variety of churches in need of musical accompaniment.

"If a pianist is out for the service and a replacement is needed quickly, the accompaniments from HymnServe.com can be a great substitute," Mrs. Johnson said.

Downloadable worship music is easily accessible and works well for last minute replacement music. She has a deep desire to help churches in need of downloadable hymns and HymnServe.com is just the thing to meet those needs.

All music is played by Mrs. Johnson who has been studying the piano since grade school. She uses organ, piano, and occasionally, other instruments to create the sound of your favorite hymns found on HymnServe.com.

HymnServe.com delivers customized CDs in three different ways: by download, online orders, and by mail. Cassettes and other formats are also available. For more information, contact 1-877-HymnServe or visit www.hymnserve.com.
