Accompaniment Tracks for Lent 2021


We know that planning worship during the global pandemic has not been easy. With all of the added stress, new skills (audio/video editing!!!), and constant curveballs, we know that you’re probably tired. With Easter just around the corner and plans being made, we hope that these accompaniment tracks will ease your burden a bit, giving you time and energy to focus on other projects and congregational needs on the horizon.

In total there are 15 hymns with the majority of those being recorded in two different styles. With the exception of the acapella selections (which necessitate vocals), these are provided without vocals so that you, your cantor, choir, or congregation can add their own voices to the track. Hymn suggestions are based on the Revised Common Lectionary readings.

All of these are public domain hymns, are free to download, and should be considered “creative commons,” meaning you can use them in any way you would like as long as credit is given to The Center for Congregational Song.


Downloads are available at the bottom of this page in our SoundCloud player, or by going to our SoundCloud account here.
