  • 2008-04-25 00:00:00.0 A new and welcome take on hymns

    Many other hymn arrangements I've seen for an early/intermediate player like myself are just the melody line in one register which repeats an octave higher. This collection is more complex, with interesting counterpoint and unusual harmonies. The sound is untraditional, so it's not for the faint of...

    ear. But after listening to the sampling (recommended), I was sold. We all know what the songs sound like anyway, so I appreciate the arranger's fresh approach that helps us hear the music anew. My only regrets were that there weren't more of my favorite hymns, and that the double stops in several of the pieces were too difficult for me to negotiate.
