Notes and Other Information

NOTE: You will need the Shaped Note font I use in Finale otherwise some of the noteheads will be strange characters. Download this font by right-clicking here, select Save as... and save to your desktop then follow your OS instructions on installing fonts.

NOTE: Some songs will be updated for aesthetics (i.e., larger notes, better lyric spacing, stem connections) and Finale 2002 and MIDI files will be added for those updated songs. The updates will be done on the alphabetic grouping starting with "A", catalogs will also be updated with the changes. - UPDATES COMPLETED

NOTE: The tempo of the MIDI files have been slowed down on some songs for easier learning of the song.

NOTE: PDF-L is lead (melody) only music since the harmony arrangement is copyrighted but the melody and words are Public Domain.

NOTE: Not all songs have MIDI or Finale files available.

NOTE: Use this FORM to send message or requests to Web & Content Administrator (if you are an owner of any song found on this web site and it is not Public Domain please use above FORM to request removal of song)
