In 2006, six top arrangers were brought together as a team and asked to write new versions of some of their favorite hymns. That book, Hymns We Love, was so popular that it generated four successful sequels. Now, for the final book in the series, Lorenz decided to turn the tables and let their audience pick the music. Drawn from their online survey of favorite hymns are 12 selections from these arrangers. Each piece is preceded by program notes from the arranger and words from church pianists who took part in the selection process. Level: Moderate to Advanced.
