Where can I find the accompaniment for the Builder-only hymns?
In the back section of the Accompaniment for the Hymns volume of Lutheran Service Book, you will find a series of pages that have a gray stripe on the outside margin. These pages contain hymn numbers 967–986. Accompanists should be informed that congregants who are using only the Pew Edition will not have access to these hymns without a printed copy from Lutheran Service Builder.
Are four-part settings available for the hymns in Lutheran Service Builder?
Lutheran Service Builder contains only melody versions of all hymns in Lutheran Service Book. There are settings provided for liturgical elements in Divine Service, Setting Three and in portions of the Daily Office, but no hymns in Lutheran Service Builder contain four-part settings.
Will Bible translations other than the ESV be made available for Lutheran Service Builder?
Currently, only the English Standard Version translation of the Bible is available as an integral part of Lutheran Service Builder. We are currently evaluating the possibility of offering additional translations as separately-sold add-on modules for Lutheran Service Builder. We will release more information as it becomes available.
