    The congregation actually hangs around to hear these postludes! This book has inspired me to spend more time enjoying preparation for Sunday mornings. Yes, I even have to count! I absolutely LOVE the harmonies and modulations. They give the old favorites new life. Thank you for this gift.

    I'm giving this book a four rating rather than a five because the pieces are a little harder to work up than pieces from some other books I use for church. The music is a little more difficult and often involves several key changes. However, there's a lot...

    of music to choose from and I am easily able to cut what is necessary to accomplish the desired length and sound. This book is well worth the price.

  • April 08, 2009 Replaced a "permanently borrowed" copy of this book!

    Following a reheasal for Easter time services, I placed this book on a front pew of my church and apprently someone else thought it was a keeper too! Never saw it again. I love the arrangements in this book - updated old and familiar tunes that I still know the words...

    to.... Great book for preludes, offeratories or just playing for my 80 something parent's pleasure.
