I’ve just discovered that the Free Finale Notepad can change the key of 75% of hymncharts arrangements!

Over the years I’ve tried using the Free Finale Notepad but it just didn’t work that great. It might change the key but it would also mess the spacing up so bad that the sheet music looked awful.

Recently I thought I’d take another look to see if the software had changed. It has! I tried changing the key of All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name and when it worked I nearly fell out of my chair. I’m so excited LOL!

BUT… here’s why it will work on only 75% of the arrangements: the Free Finale Notepad will only change the key of the entire arrangement.

That means it won’t work on my earliest arrangements. Back when hymncharts started years ago it was in vogue to modulate (change key) on the final verse of a song, giving it a “lift.” These days with modern worship the songs stay in the same key throughout. In fact, I literally can’t remember playing a key change in a church praise band in over ten years.

This means the Free Finale Notepad will NOT work on my older arrangements (about 25% of them) because it won’t insert the key change on the last verse (instead only changing the key of the entire hymn.) You’ll have to use one of the paid versions of Finale (Finale or Printmusic) to do that.

Happy new year from hymncharts! Along with the new website I wanted to refresh my flagship arrangement of All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name.

I’ve remixed and remastered the vocal demos, stereo tracks and multitracks. The SATB, SAB, synth strings and instrumental parts have been revised (I do this for some my older arrangements as I feel I can both arrange and mix music better than I did when hymncharts first started.) Removed are some of the synthy leads and pads that were more in vogue a decade ago. The 3 part vocals remain the same.

Originally created in 2002, All Hail the Power was my first hymnchart. Nearly twenty years ago I was a music director at a small church plant and people in my congregation were, ahem, concerned that I was not including hymns in my praise sets! I didn’t because there weren’t any – in those days we didn’t have the resources we have today. So I simplified the chord structure, dropped it to the guitar-friendly key of E major and hymncharts was born when the arrangement turned out to be a smash hit with the people in my church.

Back then (version 1.0) the arrangement had a modulation (key change) on the final verse. Version 2.0 came around 2012 when I started recording in LA and Nashville and began learning more about the mixing process. I’ve kept it in one key as most praise songs no longer modulate. The 3.0 version you hear today benefits from (hopefully) my better arranging skills as well as the latest computer technology with mixing, mastering and virtual instruments.

We love HymnCharts…it has helped us start an orchestra ministry in our small church! The parts are accessible and don’t leave the same “gaps” as most orchestrations. We appreciate what you do. God bless your ministry!

I use your charts almost every Sunday, and love them. You have done such a great job giving new life and spirit to old hymns. Your website is easy to use, and all charts are so accessible. Well done!

Our congregation is incredibly receptive to your quality arrangements of the old hymns. The elder saints can still hear the tune they love so much and generation x/z feel like they’re singing new praise and worship songs and are digging the “deep” lyrics. I think your product is the best on the market.
