The Hymnal of The Church of Ingria will be a phone app! After a volunteer from Finland offered to create the app, we needed the lyrics of all the hymns in electronic form. Darya Shkurlyatyeva, the head of the Hymnal working group, had all of the source materials for the Hymnal, however the first verses of the hymns were only in the MuseScore and PDF formats where the lyrics were placed under the music staves. Nine people volunteered to re-type the first verses in the MSWord format, 50 hymns per person! Thank you everybody who came forward ready to help, even though we didn’t have enough hymns for all of you! 🙂
