Level 2 - Church musicians are expected to be flexible, and Ruth Elaine Schram is making that easier than ever in her continuing "Prayludes" series. What is a "Praylude?" It's a medley of popular hymns, designed to be playable in several lengths, with optional starting and stopping points suitable for everything from a short musical filler to an extended offertory. They are easy to prepare, but musically satisfying, showing the creative spark that Ruthie Schram is known for. The nine medleys in this new set of "Prayludes" will take you through Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, and the beginning of the new year.

    This book has several pieces easily prepared for performance yet very nice. I definitely recommend the book for the intermediate to advanced pianist.

    I am a longtime church organist/pianist and am always looking for new music to play for services. I played one of the songs for the children's service, and several for Christmas Eve. The medleys are well-written, with some new twists in harmony. I especially like that each...

    piece can be shortened easily. I received many compliments on this piano music! Can't wait till next Advent to play more of the songs!
