NEW EDITION OF ORGAN BIBLIOGRAPHY
Joan Ringerwole has prepared a new edition of the Bibliography of Organ Music. Using this resource, organists can look for music to correlate with hymn tunes found in the Psalter Hymnal and Rejoice in the Lord. The fifty-page 1994 edition includes hundreds of additions. Organists who work at choosing music to correlate with the hymns sung in a given service will find this an invaluable resource. Each composition listed is coded as to level of difficulty (E=easy, M-medium, D=difficult). Available from CRC Publications for $10.35 US (call 1-800-333-8300} and $13.95 CDN (call 1-800-263-4252).
