  • June 12, 2012 Beautiful classic hymns arrangements

    As one reviewers said, the hymns in this book are easily prepared by an experienced player. On the other hand, I would not call them early intermediate. An early intermediate player would really struggle with these arrangements. I guess it all depends on your definitions of intermediate or advanced. In...

    any case, these are very pretty, classic hymns arrangements, appropriate for church preludes or offertories (for which I plan to use them.) One thing I particularly enjoy about this book is that Melody Bober doesn't deviate from the original feel of the hymn. I have found many hymn arrangements with drastically altered rhythms or harmonies or transpositions to minor keys that radically change the hymns. That is not the case for this book. Bober maintains the original beauty of the hymns she chooses and compliments with a beautiful arrangement.

    This is a wonderful book. The songs are challenging and contain a great variety. I started with the easier ones and will be happy when I've learned enough to tackle the harder ones. They are all beautifully done. Melody Bober is always trustworthy. Her music includes chords and arpegios...

    , which I like.

  • July 23, 2010 Good but not advanced

    I personally like Melody Bober's works and I was interested in her arrangements. In whole it has her contemporary touch and may not be elaborate as other arrangers but expresses the words of the hymns. Sometimes, simpler arrangements communicate better and these arrangements are the case. I played Amazing...

    Grace and many told me they felt peaceful during the service. Though it says Early Advanced, I would rate it intermediate, even early intermediate for some pieces. For experienced pianists very little preparation shall be needed. For intermediate level pianists you can work on it for a few weeks and have it ready.

  • February 23, 2009 Beautiful arrangements of the classics!

    I absolutely love this collection of hymns. I am a big fan of Melody Bober's work, and these arrangements speak to a wide audience. I use pieces from this book at least once every Sunday. The arrangements are easy enough to play but are written in a way that...

    they sound more complex. I highly reccommend it!
