Not sure if this is recommended by the admins but I just tried this on IE8.
1. When re-directed to the main community page after attempting to login from the Hymns section, click back on your browser.
2. Refresh the page; the login box at the bottom right of this page should disappear.
3. Navigate to the hymn you originally wanted to download and try to download it again. You should see the download option as an actual hyperlink as opposed to semi-greyed out text.
Hope this helps.
