The shadow of the cross is broad indeed for Christians. Within its enormous power to comfort and reassure, we feel the love of God, the forgiveness of sin, and ultimately, everlasting life. Since that first Good Friday, hymn writers have vividly portrayed the significance of the cross and composers have enveloped these profound texts in equally evocative and dramatic musical settings, creating hymns that have become congregational favorites over the years. In this collection, Larry Shackley has eloquently broached the next creative step with eight beloved hymns, providing sensitive and compelling settings for the church pianist to share with his or her congregation. In any venue, playing these settings will kindle emotions, fashion moods, and enhance worship. While exploring the breadth of the instrument, these well-crafted arrangements fall easily under the fingers, allowing the pianist to focus on communicating the depth and meaning of the hymns themselves. (Durations included.).
