Violin Hymns and Obbligatos, Vol. 3 (Patriotic and Folk tunes including AMERICA, ASH GROVE, GREENSLEEVES, SLANE and 52 others). Composed by Douglas Smith. String ensemble. For violin and piano. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.30-2389L).
Continuing the strong tradition and popularity of two previous volumes in this series, each setting is presented with the familiar hymn melody. Additionally, an obbligato is provided to be played either by a second instrument or along with congregational singing of the hymn. The obbligatos are designed to work with standard hymnal harmonizations. This is a great resource for enhancing congregational singing in the church.
