Traditional hymns are often performed alongside contemporary praise and worship songs in many of today's church services, giving rise to the term "blended worship." This distinctive collection provides a valuable resource for pianists who want to play familiar hymn tunes in a tasteful and new style in addition to current praise songs recognizable to most congregations. To assist in planning, approximate performance times and optional segues are included. Titles: Amazing Love (My Lord, What Love Is This) with What Wondrous Love Is This * Beautiful One with O Come, Let Us Adore Him * Forever with Great Is Thy Faithfulness * How Deep the Father's Love for Us with I Stand Amazed in the Presence * How Great Is Our God with Praise to the Lord, the Almighty * Indescribable with Morning Has Broken * O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing with Sing to the King * On Eagle's Wings with Be Thou My Vision * The Power of the Cross (Oh, to See the Dawn) with Lift High the Cross * 'Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus with In Christ Alone (My Hope Is Found).

  • October 05, 2013 Nice Collection

    I recommend this book. It is marked "Early Advanced". This is a very useful book, perfect for a congregation that likes the old hymns but is being "transitioned" to contemporary music. I use this for preludes. The arrangements are mostly easily learned but not usually sightread. There are many pieces...

    in the book that are so workable, not like some books with only 1 or 2 that end up usable. The print is large enough to be very usable.

    I found at least 7 of these medleys that will be recognized by parishioners. I particularly love that On Eagle's Wings appears for the first time that I am aware of in Carol Tornquist's arrangements of these old and new favorites.

    I plan to use some of these arrangements soon. They are easy to read and a good combination of new and old. They will be good for preludes and offertories. I enjoyed sitting down to read through them when I received the book.

    I really like the arrangements in this book. They're fairly easy, so work up quickly. The first Sunday I played some of them before church, the pastor commented in the great combination of contemporary songs with oldies. An excellent balance for my congregation.
