New Recording:
I Love To Tell The Story

Hear it on the HymnCharts blog.

I recently got around to finally recording this hymn. Actually, I'd classify it more as a Gospel song - it's a little more pop/folky than a traditional hymn (although you'll still find it in a hymnal.) I thought it was probably written in the early 20th century, but no - it was composed in 1866, so it's as old as many classically-based hymns.

I've revised the 3 part vocals and SAB choir to be a background vocal part for a male worship leader, while the SATB retains the full melody. Transposed chord charts have also been added.

Sometimes guitar parts can get obscured in the mix. For this arrangement I've created a "guitar spotlight" MP3 that has a louder electric on the left and a louder acoustic on the right so your guitarists can hear their parts more clearly.
