Hymns for Special Occasions

Written by Roger Tabor

Are you looking for a new wedding hymn, or a baptism (christening) hymn, or do you need a special hymn for some other occasion? At St Matthew's we have a unique collection of hymns, written over the years by our organist, Roger Tabor. Nearly all can be sung to (suggested) reasonably well known hymn tunes, but some also come with a tune of their own. All hymn texts are in Microsoft Word format, to facilitate copying on to printed sheets etc. Texts with music are in Adobe PDF format.
