Violin Hymns and Obbligatos, Vol. 1 (Including DIADEMATA, LYONS, LOBE DEN HERREN, ADESTE FIDELES and 59 other seasonal and standard hymns). Composed by Douglas Smith. String ensemble. For violin. Christmas, Eastertide, General, Sacred. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.30-1776L).

Hymn tunes often spring to life with the introduction of a new timbre, such as the violin, but it is often difficult to know how or where to utilize the welcome addition. These collections solve that problem and give violinists the opportunity to enhance the music of the church, whether it be a featured number listed in the order of worship, or an unscheduled addition to a congregational hymn. Well-suited to the average violinist, these obbligatos are very flexible and may be performed as solos--alone or accompanied by any typical hymnbook harmonization, violin duets between the provided hymn tune and obbligato, or as accents to congregational singing. Where several keys are standard for the same hymn tune, all have been included. Volume 1 includes DIADEMATA, LYONS, LOBE DEN HERREN, ADESTE FIDELES, HYFRYDOL and 57 other seasonal and standard hymns. Volume 2 includes SALVATIONIST, CONVERSE, NETTLETON, HIGHERGROUND, BETHANY and 32 other traditional, early-American gospel songs.
