  • November 04, 2010 One of the must-haves for church organists!

    I have used this collection for a number of years, every Advent/Christmas season: wonderful selection of pieces in the collection and lovely arrangements. With repetition of several measures to match the choral form, I find the arrangement of "Hallelujah Chorus" (Handel) very manageable for congregational/choir singing of the...

    piece, which our church does every Christmas. I consider this collection one of Ms. Bish's finest.

    I purchased The Diane Bish-Christmas Collection knowing that I probably could not play but a few songs from it. I was looking for two recital quality solo pieces for an upcoming Christmas concert. O Holy Night and The Hallelujah Chorus were perfect! Not only playable, but beautiful arrangements that...

    I never tired of practicing. Once learned, I felt a great sense of accomplishment (we are talking Diane Bish). I am an organist with average skills. I could not do justice to any of the other songs titles--because could not give the music their due or the songs did not interest me, personally.
