Level 2 - Church musicians are expected to be flexible, and Ruth Elaine Schram is making that easier than ever in her continuing "Prayludes" series. What is a "Praylude?" It's a medley of popular hymns, designed to be playable in several lengths, with optional starting and stopping points suitable for everything from a short musical filler to an extended offertory. They are easy to prepare, but musically satisfying, showing the creative spark that Ruthie Schram is known for. The nine medleys in this new set of "Prayludes" will take you through Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, and the beginning of the new year.
