The Unitarian Universalist Musicians Network supports and promotes the use of live music in worship. Recognizing that congregational resources can be limited, however, we are pleased to offer these accompaniment tracks for use in Unitarian Universalist settings. UUMN has been blessed with a generous donation which has made the recording of four hymn accompaniment tracks possible for music found in Singing the Living Tradition and Singing the Journey. This material is offered as a service to the UU Community. Though free of charge, the files are not intended for redistribution or performance outside of UU settings.
Below you will find two versions of each hymn: one is the piano accompaniment only and the other is the piano accompaniment with saxophone playing the vocal melody. Each file has been created to represent the music as notated in the hymnal. Hymns without a notated introduction will play the verse once as an introduction.
The UU Musicians Network provides these accompaniments as a free service. However, your donation will help to support the creation of additional music files and other services to benefit our Unitarian Universalist congregations.
