    I find the pieces to be unique in sound. The pieces have a good level of challenge to them but they are not out of reach. I have a lot of appreciation for Rick Foster's music. If he has anything to do with arranging a piece, the music will...

    be worth playing and hearing.

  • June 15, 2006 Foster's Genius

    I have only recenty discovered Rick Foster's arrangements of Sacred Music; I knew immediately they were exactly what I hoped for. I have 4 of his books already, and plan to get "Favorite Hymns for Acoustic Guitar" today. Rick's superior selection and arrangement of Sacred material is unparalled...

    . Thoroughly satisfying!

  • February 04, 2005 Rick Foster's Book Is Excellent

    If you're looking for beautiful, classical arrangements for your favorite hymns, this is the book you want. However, Rick Foster is clearly a very talented man; and even veteran guitarists may find these arrangements VERY difficult. The hymns are designed for the classical guitar method. I received this book...

    in perfect condition, and I enjoy it thoroughly... I'm now a Rick Foster fan. Unfortunately, it took a very, very long time to arrive after I ordered it.
