Simple Hymns Simply Played
by M Paulson

With a few klunkers and at times a bit (lot) too fast, here is a collection of hymns being "simply played," without any fancy arrangement.
I am reading from the Soul-Stirring Songs & Hymns - John R. Rice 1972 edition green hymnbook.
Doctrinal Warning

Since I recorded these hymns, I have had my eyes opened concerned rightly dividing and following the teachings of the risen Christ by following Paul.  There are a number of verses, words and even complete hymns below that are not doctrinally correct.  In other words, this is basically a 'baptist hymns' page.  

Maybe in my retirement years or when I have the time to take on such a huge project, I would make corrections or comments for each necessary change.  I am hoping that you or your pastor will recognize those doctrinally incorrect places and either correct them or eliminate them in some manner.  

It would be a huge project and I have been aware of the situation and have considered the project many times - Seriously, I just have not had the time to work on it since I got back into the work force.  I say that not as an excuse but as fact.  My apologies for 'dropping' this important element of the ministryl  

Each set is approximately 10 minutes long.  These are in MP3 format.
All are free and downloadable on your computer for you to make your own copies.

This is piano or live audio music - nothing midi, professional or fake.

Simple Hymns Simply "Singalongable!"

These are the standard 'archaic' hymns that we used to sing in our King James Bible Believing Churches.  I have had many requests to play these so folks can either sing along with them in their homes or use them in a church situation where there is no accompanist or piano.

Congregational Singing
Sung at Touchet Baptist Church - 1996-2009

Nothing showy, entertaining or spectacular - we just liked to sing "to", "about" and "for" the Lord

Nothing new and contemporary - no banjos and electronic keyboards.
No emphasized rhythm or polished harmoies and special arrangements - no spit and pizzazz!

Just the old stuff the way 'it used to be!'

From My Deeper Past
Congregational Music from My
Past Years in the Music Ministry
These are taken from a few old 'tapes' from my past years in the music ministry.  I was either the choir director, song leader, one of the trumpeters, marimbaists or just part of the music in one way or another. 

These are nothing fancy, just common Bible Believers singing the 'good ole stuff' many years ago.

Recording One

Recording Two

Recording Three

Recording Four

Recording Five
This is an early quartet rehearsal in Las Vegas years; I was the high voice - Preston S., Johnathan P., and John Mc. were the rest of the group. Those were quite the days!

Recording Six

This is a recording of a men's quartet that no longer exists - it dissolved as the men left to go their own way. No, I am not in this one - you can easily tell, too!

(There are the occasiona 'specials interspersed within these tapes)

My Piano Music from My Earlier Years!
These are taken from old 'tapes' that go back a number of  years ago of my piano playing. There is nothing 'spectacular' here - no fancy frilly key-tinkling, nor is this meant to be anything 'special' other than to provide the 'old' Bible Believing hymns and medleys I used to play for congregations.

(I sure played extra quickly in those days - sorry about that...)
