2018 Song Search

Article excerpt

As part of The Hymn Society's ongoing commitment to the enrichment of congregational song, and in anticipation of the 2018 conference, "Sacred Song and the Public Square," the Executive Committee has announced a search for a new song. The winning entry will be premiered at our 2018 conference in St. Louis, Missouri. This search honors the role that sacred song has played in uniting people to stand against injustice and seek positive change in their communities. An effective entry in this search will provide a singable, short form song in the style of the oral tradition.

This search continues The Hymn Society's series of hymn searches related to various aspects of the life and witness of people of faith made possible by gifts from Mary Nelson Keithahn, Life Member of The Hymn Society, and the estate of Loryne H. Koebele.

This search is for a new song, both text and tune, in short form. Entries are encouraged to include both a musical score and a recording of a performance of the piece. Further details and instructions for submitting an entry may be found on The Hymn Society website at www.thehymnsociety. …
