For my final project, I decided to arrange a hymn.  I am not familiar with many hymns as I became part of the church during a time when hymns were not very popular – dare I say it was what the “old people” used in the early service at church.

During this course, I became so much more aware of the richness, beauty, and wisdom that is found in our history, and hymns became a prevalent way that I could connect with it.

I hope to continue to go deeper on this adventure and arrange more hymns for use in our church,and perhaps yours.
