This will eventally be an on-line edition of Southern Harmony, the
classic American hymnal that introduced hymns such as Wondrous
Love Eventually, I hope it will contain hymn texts, midi files,
and printable PDF sheet music -- that it will be, as much as
possible, a usable web version of the hymnal. The information will
be stored in a database for generating index and HTML pages and for
searching. Peter Irvine is entering the midi files and Vic Johanson
is typing in the texts.
Is anyone interested in entering a few of the more important hymns
into a program like Finale, printing them as postscript files, and
sending them to me for conversion to pdf and for putting on the web?
