Tips and Techniques for Creating Hymn-Based Organ Settings

By Donald Rotermund

Tips and Techniques for Creating Hymn-Based Organ Settings. Composed by Donald Rotermund. This edition: spiral-bound. Book. Published by MorningStar Music Publishers (MN.90-56).

Item Number: MN.90-56

ISBN 9780944529522.

This new edition continues where the first book leaves off in teaching techniques necessary to create a variety of pleasant settings based on the notes of the hymnal harmonizations. The hymnal serves as the basic printed resource for taking something "off the page." Each self-directed chapter treats a different technique, and it's not necessary to work through the chapters in order. One may also use contrasting techniques to develop longer settings. Volume 2 includes more advanced concepts, such as "Modifying Inner Voices," "Changing Tonality," and "Ornamenting Melodies.".

    This was a birthday gift to an adult organ student wanting ideas to improvise hymns in church. I consider this a valuable resource for her!
