The project to upload the audio files of all the 456 hymns from the Church’s Hymnal on elci.ru is complete! The links are below the liturgical calendar at http://elci.ru/liturgicheskiy-kalendar/ There, you can also download a pdf version of the Hymnal. You can use those materials for home prayers and online worship services.
The hymns are sung by Marina Väisä, Maksim Menkin, Maria Skipper, Irina Lapteva, Irina Hutter, and Rev. Ivan Hutter (celebrant). The organ score is performed by Marina Väisä.
Enjoy yourselves listening and singing!
If you need additional materials on the Hymnal, such as hymn lyrics in the MSWord format to upload them on your congregation’s page in a social network before the live stream of your worship service, contact Darya Shkurlyatyeva at https://vk.com/shdarja
You can find the lyrics of Finnish hymns from Virsikirja at https://virsikirja.fi/
We, too, are starting to create a similar web resource!
