We had a letter read at last nights meeting about the branch changing the tempo of the piano music that we sing with at the meetings. They said that the tempos of some of the songs made it hard for some to sing along easy. They said for congregations to start using these as soon as possible. I will be downloading these to see if I see any difference.

I compared a few of the new ones with the current ones - and then with the same ones from the former songbook.

 

One example of what I noticed: Song n° 7 "Christian Dedication". As song 13 in the former songbook it had a faster tempo. To me it conveyed devotion. In the new songbook it was slowed down - and to me sounds more like a dirge! Now the tempo is back to what it was originally - and once again, to me it expresses devotion. Of course, this is just my opinion. But I must say, I'm delighted!

So you've all noticed a change with the songs? So far I haven't noticed anything... The literature code/file names don't seem to have been changed.

My dad has a jw.org login and he told me that a letter has been received concerning this issue. However, I understood it had more to do with instruments used in songs rather than tempo? I was so looking forward to this since I've thought the current piano accompaments are nowhere as, festive (eh?), as versions often played at conventions.
