2002Abana Praise and Worship MIDI (NewSong Online)2002
 Formerly "Today's Praise and Worship Music in MIDI Format"

NewSong Online would like to apologize for any inconvenience but Abana Praise & Worship MIDI will not be posting midis anymore... Times & laws have changed. The below emails from February 28, 2003 will explain what's going on here. As you may already know, when reading an email with many replies, you need to start at the bottom and work your way up.


If I have any midis posted here that you own the copyright on let me know and I'll gladly remove them.
Research this issue out if you have any questions.

Hi again,

I'm not sure which email you want to use -- mine or yours -- but it's fine to do so. Please don't include my email address, if it is one of my letters, as I'm quite ill and homebound with diabetic complications. Thank you for being so godly, even in the original shock this morning.

God bless you,
Linda
