    This title is my favorite of Mr. Martin's series. He captures the essense of Americana through these various Hymn Tunes. My favorite in this collection is Simple Gifts which is just such a beautiful arrangement. I have never found anything that comes close to the moment that he caputures...

    in this piece. Purchase this title if you can.

    I've had this book for a long time now, and when I look for a piece to play for an offeratory and special music at church, I just hop into this great book. The arrangements are so out of the ordinary, and the listener gets a real unique listening...

    experience. This book is probably one of my favorites. GET IT!!

    I bought this because I have Joseph Martin's other 3 books: Songs for the Journey, Christmas Tapestry, and Celtic Tapestry. His arrangements are unusual and beautiful, although I personally don't care for the jazzy parts that are in a few of his pieces. He also includes some compositions...

    of his own in each of his books.
