    This is a VERY difficult book to tackle, but WELL worth the extreme effort. Please condsider this collection of sacred hymns mixed with classics by compsers such as Bach and Chopin. If you've been playing for MANY years and are looking for something new, why not give this a...

    try? If you're looking for something around the same level, try Susan Caudill's book "This is My Father's World."

    I bought this book for students who will be going to competitions and it is perfect! The combination between the classical pieces and hymns are very well done. It is definitely advanced though, so it takes some practice to play well.

    A friend bought this book for me, because we use to live down the street from Marilyn Reimer, and I just love it. It is one of the best arranged books of church hymns and songs I have ever come across. Well done Marilyn!
