Simplified Hymns

These songs were published in Hymns (1985) by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

They were arranged by Michael Smurthwaite, and may be copied free of charge for non-commercial use.

These simplified arrangements are designed to be utilized by young and emergent pianists to accompany the hymns.

They feature the melody with simple supporting notes or chords in the original key to assist the inexperienced player to transition into using the regular hymnbook.  Because they are simplified, the common SATB parts are not played.  They can be used to accompany, while the congregation uses the regular green hymn book to sing parts.

Only the hymns which have a Spanish equivalent are included here. No prohibited copyrighted hymns are included.
