Category Description for Then Sings My Soul:

When my grandmother died at 105 years old, she had outlived her memory. But she recognized hymns that she had learned as a child until almost the end of her life. These are some of the same hymns that I learned in church and that my children have subsequently learned. Hymns cross the generation gap and unite believers across centuries. If you've ever heard or sung "O Sacred Head, Now Wounded" you have crossed ten centuries of shared Christian experience. It's amazing to me that we can sing these old hymns and recognize biblical truths and shared faith experiences. These books will add breadth and depth to your knowledge of Christian hymns. Book 1 and 2 follow a similar pattern. Each contains 150 grand - timeless and best-loved - hymns (written with musical notation - i.e. playable/sing-able) and a story about each (on facing pages). The stories always start with a scripture reference and usually provide some sort of personal application. Usually they will include a biographical sketch of the hymn writer and some background information about the hymn. Since hymns are written out of life experience, these often strike an emotional chord. Three indexes in the back of the books help you locate any hymn by its

Would love to teach my children the history behind the hymns we love. The reviews sound good. Hoping to use this book to teach a choir class for our homeschool electives program.

Is this spiral bound? How do it sit on the piano? Wondering if it falls shut while you are playing.
User on Jul 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, this is not spiral bound. It is a paperback book. I would imagine there is a way to make it work on the piano, maybe using binder clips to hod it open. Where there is a will there is a wayy :) It is a great book.
