 Good purchase!, Thursday, September 29, 2011
By Cori Fortuna, CA

This book is terrific for anyone who isn't a regular musician, but fills in at times. The simple accompaniments are easy to play. The spiral binding is helpful too.

I wish I had known this was available when I took the job of organist for an Episcopal church. This book is great and it would have saved me a lot of work!

 Wish I had bought this years ago!, Thursday, January 7, 2010

The 97 hymn tunes in this book cover most of the major seasons of the church calendar. Most of them have chords. I am a pianist turned organist but because of limitations of time and height, these are much easier for me than playing from the hymnal 1982. I can sightread almost everything in this book. In addition the book gives suggestions for using the 97 tunes as alternate tunes for other hymns, and gives informatino about simple accompianments in hymnal 1982. There is information about how to apply the simplification concepts to other hymn tunes. I am planning to buy another copy for the church so that other musicians can benefit. If we have a guitarist join our congregation again we will be able to easily integrate the new musician into our playing.

I wish I had bought this years ago! I could sightread nearly every arrangement in this book the first time. I am a converted pianist and this would be very helpful for any new organist.
