Submit Music for the Revised Hymnbook and Children's SongBook
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced that it will be revising the Hymnbook and Children's Songbook.
Elder Ronald A. Rasband of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles stated:
"Along with prayer and the scriptures, hymns invite the Spirit into our hearts and strengthen our testimonies of Jesus Christ and His gospel... We recognize the power that sacred music has to unify the members of the Church throughout the world... We desire to offer a consistent core collection of hymns and songs in every language that reflects the diverse needs of the global Church in our day."
"Perhaps the most meaningful hymns and songs of the Restoration have not yet been written," stated Elder LeGrand R. Curtis Jr. of the Seventy. "We encourage our talented members to prayerfully consider what they might add to the body of music already known and loved by the Church."
Composers and authors have been invited to submit music for consideration at newmusic.lds.org.
An individual may submit up to five hymns and five children’s songs. New submissions must be received by July 1, 2019.
"A composer or author will need to create a profile using his or her LDS Account to submit music or lyrics. Anyone (member or nonmember) may obtain an LDS Account free of charge at ldsaccount.lds.org."
All of us here at Jackman Music are anxious to hear the wonderful music that will be added and we look forward to bringing more inspiring and sacred music to the world!
Please reach out to us if you are submitting music for the revised Hymnbook or Children's Songbook and would like to be considered as part of our family of published composers.
