About this book
In all too many churches, the pianist is locked into a rotation of favorite hymns or praise and worship songs. Playing them repeatedly is monotonous for both the player and the congregation This book was created to give church pianists options, and let them add color and freshness to familiar melodies. Includes: 12 traditional harmonizations of familiar melodies (seasonal and non-seasonal); 12 new arrangements of the same songs featuring altered chords (mostly "jazz" harmonies); and a Cool Chords section featuring 3 chords from each arrangement.
