Hymns We Love (Your Favorite Composers Share a Few of Their Favorites). Composed by Pepper Choplin. Arranged by Mark Hayes. For piano. Sacred. Moderately difficult. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.70-1573L).
We asked several of the top composers for worship services today to pick two of their favorite hymns and create new settings to include in this compilation. Not surprisingly, the results were (and are) wonderful. Amazingly, there were no duplications of titles. All, however, are refreshingly unique and represent a diverse array of musical styles. We also asked each arranger to share why they chose a particular title and, perhaps, why a certain style was chosen for this setting. And viola! . . . We now offer you this collection of hymns expressly created by these composers as a wonderful addition for any church pianist's library.
