    Sacred Music for Guitar, Volume 1 is part of a two volume set of transcriptions of Christopher Parkening's album 'Simple Gifts;' (originally released as 'Sacred Music for Guitar'). These are demanding pieces suitable for the advanced classical guitarist. Volume 1 includes favorites such as 'Praludium' and lesser-well known...

    pieces such as the African, 'Jesus We Want to Meet.' All of these pieces require advanced skill to play well, and all are suitable for the concert hall. As a note, some pieces require the use of a capo. This is an excellent set of transcriptions at an outstanding price.
