    This collection of hymns this book offers is exceptional! While I don't play each of these pieces often, Sweet By and By is always a go to when you wish to "play up" your music in any church service. The Old Rugged Cross and How Great Thou Art are...

    two of the best pieces, and difficult, I've ever played. This book is a definite must have in any advanced pianist's collection!

    Be aware that the preview of Sweet By and By is one of the simplest arrangements in this book. I ordered this for a student, but have found it to be much too difficult. Mark Hayes, as always, provides wonderful arrangements. Just be prepared for Early Advanced music with this...

    book.

    One can never go wrong with Mark Hayes. This title is great for church or home playing. Every title is very well arranged and is beautifully put together. Purchase and you will not be disappointed.

    I really like Marks work. This book is challenging for me. I play at an Intermediate Level 2 so there are songs in this book I am unable to play in public, but it certainly would be a book that more advanced pianists would enjoy.
