At present, the only way to get access to the HTI is by sending queries to the staff:
1. Give your name, address, and any academic affiliation.
2. If your query is about a tune, either send a copy of the music, or give the following details; tune name; text; first two lines coded as numbers.
3. If it is about a composer, give the composer's full name and dates if possible.
4. If it is about a book of hymns or tunes, give the full title of the book, the name of the compiler, and the place and date of publication.
If you use the information we provide in any publication, we would appreciate an acknowledgment.
The Index has been published by Oxford University Press in 4 volumes under the full title:
In due course (but not in the near future) an interface will be prepared for direct access to the database through the Internet.
