      Londonderry GB
      This is a collection of hymn preludes with the intention to provide literature for amateur organists/church musicians on a C-Exam level.
      Quite some gems can be found here.
      The hymn preludes are from the German tradition, while they are nice pieces they don't work as preludes for hymns of the English tradition.

      Frinton-on-Sea GB Still learning.
      Pieces not too difficult to learn if you don't have much time and aren't too confident. Over 50 pieces, mostly with pedals, but some are for manuals only. Conveniently grouped into different categories - Advent, Christmas, Lent etc. Have used the Pentecost ones so far, which went well. Excellent buy, together with volumes 1 & 2.
      None really, except you need to either speak German or buy a German dictionary if you want to know what the titles mean and to read the Foreword. However, the registration for each piece is translated into English.
