About our Accompaniments: Each hymn will have an introduction (an example is given for each hymnal) and successive verses based on those found in the selected hymnal. There are a few that might alternatively have a last verse reharmonization but these are marked as such.
Accompaniments are available as hymn accompaniment CDs or download via mp3 music files (other formats available). Played in a “ straight ” or as-written manner, there are NO embellishments or between verse bridges. The verses have phrasing and registration (stop or sound selections) suited to the text of each verse and an upbeat or otherwise appropriate tempo. A prayerful hymn tempo is not necessarily slow and plodding! And, most importantly, they are as you'd expect from an organist playing a church organ .
What makes our recordings uniques is that they are recorded on a church organ for church use ... not a piano or a keyboard, not an orchestrated keyboard rendering, there are no vocal additions, drums or praise band backup ..... they are organ only accompaniments for your church service.
