    Used this for so many years that the binding has separated at O Waly Waly. I no longer need a tab for this beautiful setting. I should have it memorized by now. Titled "Meditation on a Folk Song," it's probably the technically easiest to play, but a beautiful arrangement...

    . Martin's original pieces are quite good, and come across as folk hymn arrangements, sort of "Haven't I heard that before?" responses. As others said, I've received many compliments over the years after playing any of these. Highly recommend purchasing if you need church preludes, offertories, or postludes.

    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!!
