Reviews - What do customers think about The Big Book of Hymns (Piano/Vocal/Guitar Songbook)?
Might Be Great for Really Experienced Players May 4, 2006
I just started playing piano again after a 20-year break, and this book was way too difficult for me. I used to play many hymns, but the music in this book is much more difficult, requiring you to play a great deal of sharps and flats. I used to play "Just As I Am," for example, with almost no sharps and flats, but this book requires you to play them continuously with this song. This could be a great book for experienced musicians, but if you're still getting up-to-speed -- like me -- you might want to try another hymn book.
good job Feb 25, 2006
I received my order promptly; it was packaged securely; and the book was in excellent shape. Thank you.
Nice, but it would have been better if. . . Sep 28, 2005
they had included registration suggestions. The arraingements are pianistic--some more than others--but most of them would work on organ, and there are plenty of amateur/semiprofessional church organists out there that might use them.
The arraingements are at a higher level than JOY JOY JOY and at a lower level than THE BEST OF SACRED MUSIC (2 VOLS.). An interesting feature is that many of the longer hymns have different arraingements for different verses, getting more complex as it goes along. This makes things more interesting for both the player and the listner/singer.
The selections are tilted towards Baptist/Methodist/Pentacostal favorites. One would like to see a companion volume with Anglican/Lutheran/Catholic type hymns--perhaps including some easy-play LITURGICAL music as well.
