Default why are all hymns so weak?

i tried to find a MIDI od Onward Christian Soldiers for a project of mine. so far i've downloaded three versions, all of them complete shit.

honestly, what is it with christians and shitty music?! i want a song with rousing vocals(or a reasonable facsimily), rigouous melody, and would it kill anyone to add some precussion?! God damn it all!

i look for a MIDI of the song like that chorus from Strip tease, you know, where the senator walks into a banquet hall of that christian organisation, the song there was powerful, it was done with bleeding emotion! not this tranquil organ crap!


if anyone could help me with my search, i'd apreciate it.

damnit, i know that! but why are all the midis i download of this particular ****ing hymn so damn weak?! it's supposed to be a ****ing powerful song, used to encourage and embiggen an army prepareing to campaign, not to be recited without any feeling by people in some quoir.


anyway, you're not helping me. i need a midi of the hymn that is neither slow, tranquil, nor laden with organ.


i don't think i can look any longer for it. after a few minutes, i feel intelectually violated.

we've ****ing been over this. my computer won't play anything but midi's. ever since i installed Starport:GE. honestly, do you guys even read any of my posts anymore? or do you just skim over them and complain about whatever catches your eye?


frankly, all the midi's in my collection are rather good. infact, the only consistently shitty midi's i've encountered are the several christian midi's i just downloaded.

does christian music attract more talentless retards than Emo or something?

Sorry, but I don't speak Retardese - care to translate?

It's a traditional hymn, you won't find it without the organ.

As to your interpretation, I assume that's what your own personal interpretation or use of it is amounting to, yes? Because that's not the reason the song was written, nor its intended meaning.

I'm sorry that you haven't been able to find a good midi. Good midis seem difficult to find in the first place, but you're probably looking for a version of the song that you aren't going to find. Being a traditional hymn, it's power tends to come more from the voices of the choir singing, and the grace with which the organ is played, as opposed to anything else. Christians in a more subdued, liturgical worship setting find this kind of music beautiful and uplifting.

I never though onward christian soldiers was a very good hymn. Try the battle hymn of the republic.

i've never had this much trouble finding a good midi in my entire life. as per the individual hymn, i need the melody sans words and organ as tha national anthem of some fictional story i'm writing. i can't remember parts of the particular song. hense the need to find it. i could probably compose my own midi of it if i had the right facilities, but i don't.

Maybe instead of looking for Christian hymns, you could consider looking for Soviet-era Russian choral music. That might have the power that you are seeking.

I was going to suggest that... That's a pretty rousing hymn.
