  • August 23, 2014 Beautifully arranged!

    This book is full of classic hymns that are wonderfully re-harmonized. Truly, Carol's arrangements breathe new life and appreciation into these well known classics! I have using these arrangements as a worship leader in our local Catholic Church. As a musician, they are all such a pleasure to...

    play! Also, seasonal favorites are re-harmonized. I have been using this for the past 4-5 years but expect to use it for the next 50 years, God willing! This is an amazing book!

    I bought Hymns Re-Harmonized about 2 years ago. What a pleasure! I have led music in church for over 15 years. Carol Turnquist has masterfully re-harmonized traditional hymns, familiar carols and service music. The re-harmonization adds a pleasant change to played out blocked chords of traditional hymns...

    allowing more generations to appreciate the melody and words of faith. I cannot tell you how many people (of all generations) have come up to me after church to tell me how great the music was after playing Turnquist's versions!

    Very enjoyable. This book allows you to play the standard hymn for singing and have a musical interlude. It is also great for offertories and preludes.

    I needed to find a hymn for my daughter's upcoming wedding. The arrangement for "Be Thou My Vision" in this volume is just what I was looking for. It contains some contemporary chords to update the sound a bit. Thank you

    Difficulty Level:
  • March 20, 2008 Good easy way to make hymns more interesting

    The reharmonization doesn't go overboard, but is noticable. What is great about this book is that it takes hymns that can get clunky and boring by the last verse and makes them smoother and more musically complicated. My only complaint is that it just reharmonizes the piano part and...

    does nothing with the voices.
