Welcome to Hymns Without Words
Thank you for visiting us. This site is a free resource for people wanting to have high quality recordings of hymns in MP3 format that can be used for congregational singing. They are not Midi files, but created using professional quality music samples. Join the thousands of people who download music every month and if you like a track, please click the "Like" button and share it with your friends.
All the hymns have been arranged and performed by Richard Irwin and used in services at the churches of the Ridgeway Benefice. Each hymn starts with an introduction and pauses are put between verses and/or lines when needed. Hymn lyrics are provided and we welcome emails to suggest alternative sets of lyrics for any particular tune if they are in the Public Domain or we are given permission of the copyright holder.
The arrangements are for every sort of instrumental combination: for traditional organ, orchestra, brass band, rock band, reggae band & etc.. You can receive details of our latest uploads by following us on Twitter - hit the blue button above.
In addition to traditional hymns, there are compositions by Richard Irwin for use in worship and meditation.
