I am demoing proclaim and was astonished to find that it does not have access to old standard hymns like How Great Thou Art, etc. This kind of defeats the purpose of using it to speed song entry. I was wondering if there was a user repository that would accessible to auto import all these old, public domain, standards. I mean we use some new that require CCI but we have a mix of old time gospel as well. I think this is a real missing feature since it would not cost Proclaim any fees to put these in the database. Yes, they are searchable here but not from within Proclaim.
- Hello, Gentlemen -- "How Great Thou Art" does seem to be an anomaly of sorts -- it's been around for quite a while, but has a recent copyright and is not yet considered Public Domain. Jefferis Peterson -- You should be able to get "How Great" through CCLI. Please let us know if you have further difficulty getting to the other Public Domain resources.
