I've arranged the Morning Medley at around 5 1/2 minutes to be an upbeat opening for any service - but it will especially work well for an Easter or Easter sunrise service. Here are some features:

One tempo: The entire Morning Medley is 116BPM so set your click/multitracks and you're ready to go.

Pop piano: In addition to the typical HymnCharts piano part (intended for rehearsal and to carry the arrangement whether you have a small praise band or just piano accompaniment), the Morning Medley features pop piano-only sheet music. This is what I'd play in a full praise band - it's a less rhythmic, sparser part that allows the arrangement to breath better within the wall of sound (several guitars and synths) you'd usually hear in a megachurch.

BGVs (background vocals): I've arranged the Morning Medley to be lead by a single worship leader with a choir or praise team singing echo/background harmonies.

   HYMNDEX Links
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 hymndex.com 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.
