Here at Singers for Funerals, we love the trend towards personalised order of service booklets, complete with family pictures and poems. However, we have also noticed a problem with hymns words differing from what is printed in most hymns books, and sometimes complete rearrangements of verses, to the point where even the organist gets confused!
After some research we tracked down the problem to a few internet hymn lyrics websites, where the person transcribing the words must have been very distracted at the time as the results are a mess.
So, we set up our www.songsforfunerals.co.uk in an attempt to put standard versions of words online, ready for families to copy and paste into their order of service. We've also included links to YouTube videos of the hymn's tune, so that where more than one tune exists, our families know which one to choose.
When preparing an order of service, always remember that a professional printing company will print EXACTLY what you send them; they will assume you have checked it first....
