There are typically 52 Sundays in a year less two General Conferences and two Stake Conferences equals 48 Sundays that congregational hymns are chosen and sung at the local Ward level;
Times 3 hymns (opening, sacrament, and closing; and sometimes an intermediate) per Sunday equals 144 hymns minimum (192 maximum) sung each year.
Out of the 308 congregational hymns, many hymns sung are sung often repeatedly, year after year, time and again, while other hymns (some rare musical jewels) are never chosen or rarely sung.
The LDS Hymnal Scheduling App (a sophisticated organization matrix) allows the client user to see which hymns have been sung and which ones un-sung. The app can reduce the current chicken-and-egg never-sung, never-learned, never-sung, phenomena. However, as familiarity with songs not often sung increase, they will more likely be sung and greater appreciated.
