New Piano Duet Collections Tuesday, September 18, 2012
If you’re look for some fresh options for one piano, four hands, try one of these wonderful collections featured on Stanton’s Sacred Piano Reading Session:
Festive Hymns for Four Hands
arr. Larry Shackley
Here’s a book that will let you use the entire range of your church’s piano by emphasizing festive, celebratory moods, and it’s perfect for preludes, postludes, and special numbers. Elements of classical, folk, Gospel, and even Sousa marches are blended together in these six fresh arrangements, all with the ultimate goal of “making a joyful noise to the Lord.” If you’ve enjoyed Larry Shackley’s four-hand arrangements of sacred classics, you’re sure to love this new collection of favorites from the hymnal.
Great Things He Has Done!
arr. Mark Hayes
What could be better than a book of Mark Hayes piano solos? How about a book of Mark Hayes piano duets? We’re pleased to introduce Mark’s first full-length piano duet collection. Designed for four-hand duos looking for a musical challenge, “Great Things He Has Done!” brings together favorite Gospel songs, spirituals, and American folk hymns. The opener, “Christians, We Have Met to Worship,” has a jaunty, traditional American feel, and it is followed by a sparkling treatment of “To God Be the Glory.” Of course, there’s a serving of jazz too–”This Little Light of Mine” will definitely rock your piano bench. At last, a Mark Hayes book that you can share with a friend!
