Many Adventist churches do not have a pianist or organist every Sabbath. And there are small groups that simply do not have access to a piano, furthermore an organ, or someone to play it. There is an electronic tool that is widely used to meet this need and a new version is now available, with a special price for those who already own it.

Hymns Alive includes the entire contents of the Seventh-day Adventist Hymnal on 24 compact discs. This is the music alone and does not include voice. It is designed to be used as an accompaniment to an individual or group singing from the hymnal. It can be used with a simple CD player or drive an electric organ or piano as well as similar electronic instruments and music creation devices.

New Hymns Alive has been entirely re-mastered and is now in better quality than ever, compatible with the latest electronic systems, producer Bob Maehre has told Adventist Today. It includes "short introductions, shorter chord at end of each stanza and more enhancements." There is a special price for those who purchased Hymns Alive and want to upgrade to the new product.

The regular price is $295 plus $16 shipping in the United States. The discounted price for those who already own the original product is $95 plus $5 shipping. It can be ordered from PAVE Records online at www.35hymns.com or by phone at (800) 354-9667.
