Congregational singing often becomes monotonous and prosaic when unrelieved four-part harmony from the hymnal is used for every stanza. Creative Hymn Accompaniments can greatly enhance the vitality of well-known tunes, especially those with many stanzas. Each setting is playable on one or two manuals, allowing the organist to play the melody on a solo stop when desired. These accompaniments avoid extreme departures from traditional harmonies and instead provide alterations which will add interest and variety. 40 pages.
