  • March 23, 2016 Dan's arrangements are gold!

    I bought this book on the recommendation of a more experienced church pianist and am delighted with what I found! I have already played through many of the arrangements and have felt chills playing each one. While not something beginning pianists could pull off easily, the writing allows for maximum...

    beauty through straight-forward patterns. I would thoroughly recommend this to church pianists looking for a bit more challenge.

  • June 26, 2014 A book of gems

    I am an advanced pianist always on the lookout for new hymn arrangements. I almost did not buy this except for Nearer, Still Nearer which I have not seen arranged. I am just so glad I did because this is a book of gems--beautifully arranged, faithful to the text...

    , challenging to heart, soul, and mind. It requires an advanced pianism though, because Mr. Forrest loves to play the melody against a singing (counter)melody sometimes by the same hand. So far I have played five of these gems and all were well-received in church. Just to clarify the level of difficulty, Illuminations is much easier than Joel Raney's Expressions or settings by Joseph Martin.
