According to the author, the complexity of the performance of church hymns of sacred music does not pose any difficulties - only the utmost attention is required performers and a competent understanding of the musical form of the works by the choir conductor.
All the choral scores of church hymns offered on the composer's website are four - voice; divisions in the parts are the exception rather than the general rule.
When composing these compositions on a music computer, the author, among other things, tried to take into account the possibility of performing sacred music not only by a large composition of a mixed choir, but also by a chamber church ensemble.
For the analysis of voice studies, and, consequently, for the evaluation of the possibility of performing and (or) transcribing church hymns for other choir compositions, there are only the opening pages of choral scores.
