    “Every organist looks for pieces that portray hymn tunes in ways that are musically interesting, sensitive to the character of the hymn text, and able to be learned in a relatively short period of time. Hymn Prelude Library provides organists with just that. It is a very useful and indispensable tool in leading the worshiping assembly in song.”
