7 Hymn Arrangements to Play in May

It’s May and there are lots of things to celebrate – Sheep Week*, Ascension Day, Memorial Day, Confirmations, Baptisms, and Weddings! So, here are seven hymn arrangements ideal for Sundays, holidays, and special occasions in May. I hope you find this list helpful as you plan your church music.

*One Sunday in the Easter season, the Revised Common Lectionary readings include Psalm 23 and focus on Jesus the Good Shepherd. I call that Sunday “Sheep Week”. 🙂 In 2017, “Sheep Week” falls on May 7th.
