On Stanton’s Sacred Piano Reading Session back in August, our clinician, Lloyd Larson, inspired us with selections from both of these lovely, new collections of hymn arrangements:
Hymns You Love
For the sixth and final book in the “Hymns We Love” series, we decided to turn the tables and let our audience pick the music. So here’s the result: twelve selections from your favorite team of arrangers (Pepper Choplin, Mark Hayes, Lloyd Larson, Mary McDonald, Ruth Schram, Larry Shackley), all on the list of “top hymns” drawn from our online survey. Each piece is preceded by program notes from the arranger and words from church pianists who took part in the selection process.
Old Hymns Made New
Carol Tornquist’s signature writing style, including fresh harmonic and rhythmic treatment to timeless hymns, if fully evidenced in this creative collection for pianists. These hymn arrangements are sure to provide a new appreciation to these familiar melodies by persons young and old.
