    What a great book to have in any church keyboardist's library! Love these arrangements. Not long and drawn out, yet beautifully arranged. I love all of Cindy Berry's piano arrangements, and this book is no exception. I highly recommend!!!!!

    I was able to play all of these without practice. They are musically pleasant and I will be using three selections this week. There were no difficult key signatures and I have found that Cindy Berry arrangements work well for me.

    Beautifully written and appropriate, and I'm glad to have this book on hand. I'm planning on preparing these pieces for use in regular church services over the next few months, as I wouldn't be able to prepare too many of them all at once on short notice...

    True to the title, this book delivers easily-prepared yet exquisite hymn arrangements. I used four of the arrangements for a recent funeral; they provided soothing and interesting music for the event while taking little time to prepare. I found the quieter arrangements to beautifully serve as background music during...

    viewings. I'm definitely keeping this volume handy for future reference!

  • November 08, 2011 What Can I Play for Funerals

    I have many Cindy Berry books, and I love the arrangements, but was disappointed in this one. This is my first book in the "What Can I Play for...." series. I felt that the songs were too much like playing a simple hymn, and lacked the creativity and beauty that...

    Cindy put into the songs in the other books I have.
