Glory to God is an iPad edition of the Presbyterian hymnal Glory to God, with razor-sharp music, powerful search capabilities, sample piano recordings of hymns, interesting information about hymns and their authors, and the ability to access several different versions of hymns including pew, accompaniment, large print, projection, lead sheet, and instrumental (strings, brass, and woodwinds).

For each hymn there is a page of information that may include a description of the hymn, a brief biography of the author or composer, and information for worship leaders such as performance suggestions and available arrangements. A brief audio clip is also available.
The search box allows you to search for hymns by first line, author, composer, topic, or scripture passages quoted or alluded to. A handy keypad lets you jump immediately to a hymn by number.
The Accompaniment with FlexScores edition includes everything in the other editions and adds our revolutionary FlexScores for most of the hymns. These include large print, lead sheet, projection, and instrumental versions. Users are able to adjust the music and text size of the scores and transpose them.
The versions offered for FlexScores include accompaniment, pew, lead sheet, projection, violin, viola, cello, bass, flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, alto saxophone, soprano or tenor saxophone, horn, trumpet, trombone, and tuba. For the instrumental versions, the music is transposed into an appropriate range and displayed in an appropriate clef for the instrument. The projection version enables you to connect the iPad to a projector and project hymns onto a screen.
A network connection is required to play audio samples and view FlexScores.
Note that while editions (such as the Pew Edition or Accompaniment with FlexScores Edition) of the hymnal can be transferred to other devices, individual FlexScores -- both the $1.99 and $9.99 versions -- cannot be transferred to other devices.
