|Lutheran Music provides two concordances for each hymnal: Abridged and Unabridged. The Abridged and Unabridged Concordances are packaged together, and the package containing both can be either downloaded from our web site or received via U.S. Mail.|
The Unabridged Concordance is a browser-based computer reference. It contains references for every word and phrase of every hymn stanza. A demonstration of the Unabridged Concordance is embedded in the (free) online demo of the Multi-Media Library. After selecting a specific hymnal, click on the alphabetical letters at the top of each web page to access the concordance entries.
The Abridged Concordance is a dictionary-like book, provided as a PDF file, indexing all the significant words and phrases in the hymnal. In order to produce a conveniently-sized book, the Abridged Concordance omits common pronouns, verbs, prepositions, and articles that have minimal search or study value. Free previews of each hymnal's abridged concordance are available:
CW, ELH, ELW, LSB, LSB, LW, and TLH.
