The recording initiative, undertaken by a team at Methodist Central Hall, Coventry, has delivered a complete set of backing tracks for every hymn in Singing the Faith. Recorded on piano by the Central Hall organist, and Birmingham Conservatoire graduate, Alex Norman, the project has been supervised by Paul Wood and Ian Worsfold, both members of the resources group responsible for the compilation of Singing the Faith.
The CDs are absolutely great. I can certainly recommend them and have no doubt that they will make a huge difference to churches across the country who, like us, would otherwise not be able to make full use of Singing the Faith. Thank you!Julie Maxon, Shap Methodist Church, Cumbria

The recording sessions are all of live performances, each one played with a feeling for the words – and allowing singers space to breathe! Where alternative tunes are suggested in Singing the Faith, these are played in the sequence printed in the book, eliminating the need to search for tunes or tailor a tune to a different number of verses.
