Crown Him With Many Crowns 2012 is one of my first recordings with all-star session vocalists and guitarists from LA and Nashville.

I'm starting to write more "composed" parts for praise teams. I often hear praise teams get a little tired of just singing the melody and a few parts with the worship leader. Your vocalists will start out singing the melody on this arrangement, then break into a contrapuntal part midway through - all while a tenor worship leader or soloist sings the melody (give the soloist the lead sheet.)

I'm calling these "BGV" parts (background vocals) and the SAB choir also follows this format.

The SATB follows the traditional melody all the way through the song and can stand along (SATB is not a background part.)

Open your praise set with Crown Him and follow with other popular, upbeat praise songs in D:

Beautiful One / Hughes
Today Is the Day / Brewster, Baloche

This arrangement can be transposed using the free Finale Notepad (Windows only.)

The modern worship lyrics trend for projection is to leave out most punctuation for a clean look. The original hymncharts lyrics text file contains punctuation. Our new website was created to help churches build hymn lyric slides without punctuation.

Instruments mp3s are the arrangements played one time through with just piano and instrumental parts to give you an idea of the orchestration. In the early days of hymncharts before I made vocal recordings I had created these instruments mp3s as a quick demo. Since I now create both a POP and an ORC (orchestrated) mix I no longer make instrumental mp3s for newer arrangements.
MP3 Problems?
Several subscribers have had problems downloading MP3s. Here are the 2 most typical problems and solutions:

1. How do I download the MP3s? MP3s and (if available) multitrack WAV downloads are found under the "tracks" tab. You can download these MP3s (or any files) to your computer by RIGHT clicking the button, then a little box will pop up with options. Select something like "save as"or "save link as" to manually save the MP3s to your computer where you can then burn a CD, email it to your praise team or upload it to a worship planning website.

2. The MP3 won't play in iTunes (or other media player.) All HymnCharts MP3s are free from ALL copy protection and can be used any way you want. Some people are clicking the MP3 button dragging it to iTunes or another media player. This won't work (you're actually just dragging the image file of the button!) Download the MP3 using the instructions above, then you can access it through your media player.
