An Organ Compendium for Christmas Eve
Christmas Eve-often the most inspiring (and best-attended!) service of the year-offers special challenges for the church organist. Worship moods and emotions range from a reverent awe to exuberant joy, and must be skillfully led and enhanced by the organ throughout the service. Such is the genesis of this collection focusing on the various moods of the holiest night of the year. From reflective lullabies to explosions of angelic jubilation, all are contained in this useful volume of carol settings by outstanding composers, carefully organized according to mood and style. Timings and registrations are also included to simplify service planning and preparation.
