Organ Music for the Season

In the first issue of REFORMED WORSHIP we provided excerpts from a complete organists' bibliography that CRC Publications hopes to publish soon after the release of the new Psalter Hymnal. On the following pages you will find more excerpts from that publication.

The bibliography, prepared by Joan Ringerwole, professor of organ and church music at Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa, is based on hymn tunes in both the forthcoming new edition of the Psalter Hymnal and the recently released Rejoice in the Lord.

All the tune names in the Psalter Hymnal (PH) and Rejoice in the Lord (RL) will be listed in alphabetical order, followed by hymn title, composer, publisher, and a letter that will tell you whether the piece is easy, medium, or difficult (E, M, D). Because different texts are sometimes sung to the same tune, we worked by tune names. In your hymnal you will find these tune names both on the page with each hymn and in the tune index in the back of the book.
