  • June 03, 2011 Some very good and some not as good

    Joyce Jones is a very talented organist and composer, with monumental organ playing technique. As far as her compositional skills, this album is similar to other albums that I have played through and/or owned. Some of the selections are very good, and some are good, but 2 or 3...

    are not as good. The strongest offerings are Come Ye Sinners, Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken, Holy, Holy, Holy, Jesus, Lover of My Soul, and My Hope is Built on Christ, the Solid Rock. The rest are pretty good, but I was highly disappointed in Marching to Zion. Not so much in the writing, but the piece was way too short. It was over almost before you started playing it. All said, except for 1 or 2 of them, this is a useful collection.

    Joyce Jones never disappoints- both in her playing and her arrangements.These Preludes are finely crafted and useful. They are based on well known hymn tunes and have been received with enthusiasm at my church.

    These arrangements are not too difficult and there is a nice variety, but the arrangements are rather uninteresting.

    Very good arrangements of well known hymns. The arrangements are unique enough to never be boring, but some will take some practice time to get up to performance. The hymns selections will be useable in most churches. A good book to have.
