    These are so lovely and fall into the hands very easily. I received it during Advent, and a couple of them were so nice for the Blue Christmas service. Now I'm using them during Lent. Just quiet and calm; so nice. Great for background music during prayer stations, communion...

    , pre-worship music.

    Bought this at my daughter's recommendation. Lovely arrangements, very creative, even to my staid old Mid-Western Lutheran ears. Brava, Miss Sorenson, well done.

  • July 15, 2014 A Rewarding Challenge

    I bought this collection on a whim, and since then have gone on to purchase as many of Heather Sorenson's collections for piano as possible. These take more work to prepare for a Sunday, but they're worth it - they're not your usual drab, predictable piano arrangements (a...

    relief to both me and my church)! They've got spunk and originality, and can be extremely powerful. I used "I Will Arise and Go to Jesus" during the imposition of ashes this last Ash Wednesday and received overwhelmingly positive feedback regarding its use (and not from the usual suspects who comment on the music). Some of the scale sections *are* a bit over the top for worship, but they can be worked around with a little bit of theory and planning. It's still worth the big breath of fresh air that this collection provides!

  • July 19, 2012 Enjoyable

    These are truly unique, original arrangements. Though I have not yet used them in the church setting, they have been some of my favorites for my own personal enjoyment over the last year. Some stray a bit from the original harmonization and melody line, but that's what lends to...

    the creativity of these pieces. "Be Thou My Vision" is exceptional. Enjoy!

  • April 03, 2012 Meandering arrangements

    This product was a big disappontment. Though advertised as perfact for communion, these arrangement are too loud and ugly for such use. Plus, they meander and go nowhere. I like to purchase books with a listening CD (saves me time sight reading through the book), so I am puzzled on...

    this one one why the recording of TILL WE MEET is not complete (not the whole song, only 40 seconds). I have never returned a piano songbook before, but am strongly considering it with this collection. If it weren't so overpriced, I might have considered keeping it.
