The selection of pieces gives one the opportunity to explore and enjoy a variety of litrugical music that can be a source of joy for player and listener alike.

Anne Marsden Thomas has devoted a great deal of her time to thoughtfully selecting and presenting these pieces.

GB Musician based in Norfolk,
Clearly laid out, easy to use, some excellent selections.
More material would have been useful - there are the obvious inclusions, but I would have liked to have seen some different ideas and more material to use at the various festivals.

Rating Review
Customer Rating A well chosen set of pieces for use at various times i the church calendar. Some are challenging others quite simple. All have documentation to support them. Certainly not the usual list of organ album pot-boilers.

Customer Rating I love this Book. Quite literally there is something for everyone and everything in here. Wie Schon Uns Leuchte Morgernstern Variations are well worth looking at :)

Customer Rating Good selection - value for money

Customer Rating A great book with a nicely varied selection of 43 pieces in different styles, well matched to the needs of advent, christmas, epiphany, lent, easter, ascension, and pentecost. Most are good interludes though there are some good preludes and postludes as well and all no more than grade 6 standard.

Customer Rating A very good and varied album. The pieces need a lot of time and practice to be able to perform them to a reasonable standard.

Customer Rating A good selection of pieces and easy to use. Includes suggested playing tips and registration ideas which I found useful. Most pieces are entitled in German so can be a little confusing but well listed in the contents.
All in all, a good choice for a selection of pieces for the year.

Customer Rating an excellent selection of pieces for the church organist, with and without pedals, with some useful notes on registration and performance.
