Piano Accompaniment Recordings

These piano accompaniments of familiar hymns are provided as free downloads as a joint project of Discipleship Ministries  and United Methodist Communications. They are intended to provide accompaniments for congregational singing for churches unable to provide accompaniment for singing.

You may find that you can also use them for choir, solo, or Sunday School use, Christmas caroling, or singing at any group setting. 

In almost all cases, we have provided accompaniments from The United Methodist Hymnal (1989), with an introduction and multiple stanzas in the key provided in the hymnal. Occasionally an alternate harmonization is included. Watch for new hymns to be added in the future.

The list of hymns may be sorted by hymn title, tune name or hymnal number by clicking on the column heading.

UMH - The United Methodist Hymnal
TFWS - The Faith We Sing
URW - Upper Room Worshipbook
CH - Cokesbury Hymnal
