Softly and Tenderly, Book 2 (Mediations of Hymn Arrangements by Dale Wood, Arranged for Piano by Gilbert M. Martin). Composed by Dale Wood. Arranged by Gilbert M. Martin. For piano. Sacred. Moderately difficult. Published by Sacred Music Press (LO.70-1484S).
The Softly and Tenderly organ collections by this remarkable composer/arranger have become some of the most popular publications in The Sacred Music Press and standard repertoire for the church organist. Several years ago, Mr. Wood rearranged a few of those organ settings in a superb set for piano (Book 1, 70/1107S), and Mr. Martin continues the series with a second book of sensitive and warm arrangements of gentle and beloved hymn melodies.
