Item description for The Faith We Sing: Singers Edition by Hoyt L. Hickman...
Ideal for use with choirs and worship teams, it supports congregational melodies. Spiral bound so it lies flat in music folders or on music stands. Many unison melodies are expanded into 2-, 3-, and 4-part harmony. Also included are entire musical arrangements - including descants and optional endings - and stanzas for the Pew Edition selections that contain only the refrain. Choirs can turn songs from The Faith We Sing into anthems. Singer's Edition coordinates with both the Accompaniment and Simplified Editions and can be used with the MIDI and CD Editions.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Faith We Sing: Singers Edition?
The Faith We Sing Apr 29, 2008
Great selection of contemporary and older Christian hymns and songs which supplement the hymnals of United Methodist and other churches.
The Faith We Sing Singer's Edition Mar 31, 2008
Our church has the pew editions in the pews (of course). Here at home, I have 1 copy of the accompaniment edition, and just now 1 copy of the singers edition. For a lot of the songs, a person could just use the singers edition for the person playing accompaniment. Both the top and bottom hands are in most of the songs in the singers book. There are some selections that have only the top hand in the singers edition. If a person wasn't to picky, the singers edition would work for the accompanist, but if you want to make sure you have everything, make sure to get the accompainment edition if you are the accompainist.
The Singers edition is great!!! It is spirial bound and easy to flip through for singers. Like I said, most of the songs have both top and both hands for each song. The dimension size of the singers edition is bigger than the pew books, but smaller than the accompaniment edition.
Overall, is you are wanting to get books for your choir, don't just use pew books, get your choir the singers books, it will be well worth the money so that not just the soprano have their part, but the alto, tenor and base have their parts too!!!
Excellent songbook Sep 28, 2007
"The Faith We Sing" is an excellent worship resource for today's church. It contains a variety of Christians songs, new and old from around the world. I would highly recommend it for anyone who wants to enrich the worship life of their church.
Good Resource for Church Musicians... Jul 2, 2007
This version of TFWS is good for instrumentalists and singers - the music has melody/lyrics, chord symbols, and keyboard parts, similar to the more expensive Accompianment Edition. The songs, like in the UMC hymnal, are organized by topic - they seem a good selection of 80's-90's praise music, with some older hymns and such thrown in.
