The sixth volume of the Piano Prelude Series includes tunes J,K, and L from Lutheran Service Book. The Piano Prelude Series includes original compositions by various composers, specifically created for Lutheran Service Book hymns. The sixth volume includes settings written by Elizabeth Grimpo, Thomas W. Jefferson, and Zach Unke.
The Piano Prelude Series features newly composed pieces by dozens of composers who write in a variety of styles and harmonizations. Edited by Kevin Hildebrand, volume 4 contains preludes for tunes starting with the letters F and G. These pieces are useful as preludes, postludes, music at the offering, for introduction, and during distribution, as well as for those who play hymns at home. The durable wire binding ensures that each page lies flat against the music stand.
