One hymnal for singers solves two problems
You may have never thought light has much to do with singing.
This hymnal is for singers and those with limited vision in your congregation
* * *
Singing is affected by more than just the placement of the tone in the right place in your head for the sound of your voice to resonate throughout the room. Not having sufficient light to see is a common problem for singers. Sadly, many choir areas are not very well-designed for even lighting.
1) Larger, it is easier to read the music and words on each page.
Singers of all ages often end up in a choir area or loft which proved the architect never spent anytime singing in a choir and struggled to see because the lighting was not bright enough or evenly covering the area. So sighted singers really appreciate being able to read the music! Stop gap measures such as work lights on the floor behind the choir and bouncing off the ceiling work but are a fire hazard and can easily heat up the choir loft to an uncomfortable level.
2) There is much more room on the page and between the staves to mark places that need attention or to jog your memory
Singers need to make notes in their music as a reminder of how pronounce a word, to circle a Bb that they keep thinking is a B and little drawing of eyeglasses to remind them to look up and see the conductor.
3) The book can lay flat and has even been prepared for spiral binding at Staples for you for only $5.03
And be sure there to remember to ask for the clear plastic front and back covers to protect the book even better and they are included in the price.
