[Menvi-discuss] a question about hymns

With the soprano and alto in the right hand and the bass and tenor in the
left hand, the piano scores in these hymnals use intervals in the right hand
to show the alto part and intervals in the left hand to show the tenor part.
The lyrics are included, of course, with each stanza brailled as a
paragraph.  The books are ideal for expanding a pianist's or singer's
repertoire of enjoyable hymns.  I regularly use them for that purpose.

Do these hymnals have chords and/or music or just lyrics? Hymns are
wonderful and I think I've seen the Methodist one you're talking about, but
I thought it was just lyrics. If not, please enlighten me because I'd get
that book in a heartbeat to learn some of those songs on the piano or maybe
some new ones to sing. Thanks.
