Stories of the Great Hymns
Short Sessions on the Creation of the Great Hymns with Simplified Arrangements
By Various Composers, June C. Montgomery, and Kenon D. Renfrow
Late Elementary / Early Intermediate
Use this resource to rekindle an interest in the rich heritage of hymns and gospel songs. While appropriate as a supplementary piano book for private and group instruction, it could also be used in church choir clubs, Sunday schools, Christian schools or home school settings. Each unit contains information on the men and women who wrote the text and the music, a story about the creation of the hymn, a simplified piano arrangement (at the late elementary to early-intermediate level), and a fun activity page that reviews the information presented in the unit.
