Hymn playing is an essential part of meaningful worship and, when done accurately and enthusiastically, it can inspire great singing in your choir and congregation. Unfortunately, we don't become skilled hymn players simply by slipping on our organ shoes. And while it will still take practice, this concise manual, written in the personable, accessible style of veteran composer, author, and organist, Albert Zabel, certainly makes things easier. Within its pages is a step-by-step presentation of the techniques you need to be a good hymn player, with exercises to reinforce each skill. Also included are twenty-five of our best-known and beloved hymns -- notated as they should be played, not as they appear in hymnals -- each of which corresponds to a hymn tune included in Mr. Zabel's previous guide, Practically Perfect Pedaling (30/1337L).
