This collection features ten easy hymns and choruses arranged for a soprano BOWED PSALTERY with PIANO accompaniment. The psaltery part was designed for a beginning psaltery player. The piano accompaniment is at the intermediate level.

The psaltery plays the melody for the first verse of each song. On several of the songs, the piano plays the melody for the second verse while the psaltery plays harmony. Some songs also include an optional repeat. For each song in this book, piano accompaniment tracks (MP3 format) are available as a separate purchase.

To assist those new to reading music notation, two solo parts are included: one is the standard music notation and includes the lyrics for sing along enjoyment. The second solo part is identical to the standard music but instead of lyrics, the note names are provided below each note (example A, B, C…).

The range of a typical soprano psaltery is two octaves beginning with the G above middle C (G4). However, since some soprano psalteries have fewer than 25 strings, the range used in this book is less than 2 octaves. Also, the notes are written an octave lower on the staff to avoid the ledger line notes that would be required to notate the upper notes. Thus, the notated range in this book is from A3 (A below middle C) to F5 (the second F above middle C).

For each song, there is a combined score (grand staff, 3-stave) with both parts (PSALTERY and PIANO) on each page, plus 2 options for the 1-staff solo part (one with lyrics, one with alphabetic note names).

Each song is also available separately with accompanying preview pages and audio samples.
