    I am the pianist/organist at a Catholic Church. I use this book all the time. It is a great mix of song with beautiful arrangements. Some sight readable, others may require a bit of effort.

    I cannot recommend this volume highly enough. Since receiving it (and not really knowing what I was getting), I have had hours of enjoyment at the piano, both for my own love of playing and also sharing with my church family. The arrangements are absolutely beautiful in all cases, very...

    clever and emotional settings of many favourites. As it came just a few weeks prior to Christmas, I used the appropriate Christmas pieces, along with more general offerings. Thankyou so much for such lovely music. I would love a sequel please. Aussie church pianist.

  • 2014-09-12 21:48:03.0 Great resource

    Very interesting and enjoyable arrangements with a wide variety of treatments. Familiar tunes but with novel and more complex treatments, making them fun to play and enjoyable for audiences. I especially love the gospel treatments by Jack Schrader, can't get enough! Enjoyed getting familiar with more arrangers than previously...

    . This should prove a great asset for any church pianist/keyboardist.
