--composition and publication of congregational hymns--


Sumphonia provides a cappella recordings of congregational hymns, most of which are newly published. Hymns recorded by Sumphonia range in genre from popular contemporary to the more classic and stately sounds. They are suitable of a worship service and less suitable of a recreational singing, as the authors and composers intend their hymns to be used for praise and edification.

Sumphonia hymns are recorded in Tampa, Florida under the direction of Dr. Scott Wyatt, Adjunct Professor at the Cincinnati Christian University. Recordings are produced to give a congregational sound.
