Soon, I’ll be combining these three different downloads into one master download, but for now, here are your options:
- Download the first batch of 58 songs. (It’s a large zip file, about 215MB, so be patient.)
- Download the 19 gospel songs and spirituals.
- NEW! Download the June 2019 release of 13 new songs. (It’s a zip file so will take a few seconds.)
Click here if you’d like to listen to single songs or see the entire song list.
If you have trouble with the downloads, read this troubleshooting guide.

Here’s a good, simple article about how MP3 files work. As the article says, “MP3 is simply a file format that compresses a song into a smaller size so it is easier to move around and store on your home computer or portable music player,” such as an iPhone or iPod.
How to use these recordings
A reminder: These professionally recorded hymns are not typical performance tracks. They are specifically arranged as sing-alongs for elders with Alzheimer’s and dementia; that is, very simple, slower, shorter, and in a lower key than usual. (But of course anyone may enjoy them.)
With this hymns collection, you can:
- Create a personalized playlist for your elder with the songs he or she loves.
- Offer a hymn sing-along session at your eldercare community.
- Provide an hour-long worship service at your eldercare residence, complete with ready-made worship agendas and songs. (If you’re not sure which songs to choose for a church service, don’t worry: I’ll be creating ready-to-use hymnals very soon.)
- Use the songs as calming background music for someone who is agitated, resting, or nearing the end of life.
- Enjoy them yourself anytime!

Peace be with you,
