Creative Use of the Organ In Worship
By Hal Hopson
A mini-course in improvising on hymntunes for the organ for use in the service as preludes, offertories and postludes, hymn introductions, hymn interludes, hymn harmonizations, and hymn codas. Also included is a list of modulations from all keys to G Major for the singing of The Doxology as well as five reharmonizations of The Doxology in both version of note values.
Part II of this book has either notated or written instructions for the use of the organ in hymn introductions, interludes, reharmonizations, and codas. Most of the book is scored for the organ; however, the settings, with minor adjustments, can be played on other keyboards such as the piano and synthesizer.
