They told us that each hymn or song has been quadruple-blind reviewed by at least 130 top-notched musicians. They had to narrow down the selection to roughly 500. From those, they have enlisted help from translator/poets and musicians from countries all over the world who can identify the hymns and Primary songs that could be most successfully translated into their languages. The goal is to publish the new hymnbook simultaneously all over the world in all the possible languages at the same time --- they are projecting sometime in 2026.
Suffice it to say that I have little hope for the chances of any of my submissions to be considered. However, they will very likely be listed on the new SACRED MUSIC app. Look for them there, if you are interested.
