There's something about the layout that makes this feel easy to play and easy to sing. I love it.
I wish the hymns were placed in a lower key - we don't sing as high nowadays as they did in the old days.
My only complaint is that the pages seem fragile for an accompaniment hymnal. Julie Ruch on May 18, 2018
There is something unique about the layout of this music that makes it unusually easy to see, especially for an older player. But, at the same time, the staves are not spaced so far apart that your eye can't easily catch both treble and bass. Quite simply the best, readable accompaniment book I've seen in my four decades as a church pianist.
Also, if your church uses hymnbooks from the 90's with the dated chords, as an accompanist, you can use this one instead. The congregation won't know you're playing out of a different book.
One other nice thing, you don't have to mess with all the lackluster praise songs from the 90's that never really took off. These are good, well known and loved hymns.
I have one wish and one complaint, ergo my 4 star rating. My complaint is that the paper feel a bit fragile. The book has a really nice spiral binding, but at the same time, I feel like I have to be extra careful turning the pages.
My wish is that the hymns had been placed in lower keys to fit today's congregations. We just don't sing as high as they did in the old days. Julie Ruch on May 18, 2018
Pages are moderately think. David on Apr 18, 2018
A great book to use at the piano. All of our pianos have a copy ready to use. Would highly recommend. William Sensenig on Oct 25, 2017
Thank you for the piano hymnal I received the other day! Now I will be able to practice new songs, and have access to the ones I know how to play well, whenever I'm at home! No more borrowing a hymn book from church - I've got my own copy! And spiral binding is the way to go - makes playing and practicing so much easier. I shouldn't be tearing any pages, and I won't have to prop the book open all the time! Thanks so much!! :) Deana Foster on Feb 20, 2017
Actually, I am disappointed that the pages are so thin. I would have preferred a better quality paper. Turning the pages over the large spiral will most likely cause them to tear. Also, the book has a tendancy to slip off the piano ledge and onto the keyboard. This is probably due to the large spiral size and I will just have to be very careful about that. My biggest complaint is the light weight quality of the pages. JoAnn on Jan 25, 2017
It must be fabulous! We keep ordering more of them! The spiral binding is so functional. Unknown on Sep 17, 2010
