The Library of Piano Praise is definitely one of the most complete collections of religious books I've ever bought. There are almost 250 pages containing over 50 of the world's best composers. Some of my favorite pieces include Bach's Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring, Handel's Hallelujah Chorus, Mendelssohn's Wedding March, Wagner's Bridal Chorus, Schubert's Ave Maria, Mozart's Kyrie Eleison, and the traditional Amazing Grace. The book contains mostly intermediate level selections. Some are a bit easier while others a bit more challenging. This is an excellent value. The book is bound with a rigid plastic binding making it stay open on the piano. The pages are clearly written on crisp white paper. You will definitely enjoy many hours of playing.
The Library of Piano Praise edited by Amy Appleby is an excellent assortment of sacred music. These classic pieces which span over 300 years include the best works of Schubert, Bach, Mozart, Mendelssohn, etc. What I like best about this book, is the fact that since I only studied piano for 3 years, there are many pieces at my level and some that offer me a challenge which I look forward to studying with my teacher. Every arrangement I have played is well written and sounds impressive when played. The notes are spread out making even the harder music look easier. I look forward to buying other books in this series.
I recently added this book to my collection. It has been such fun and I especially love the spiral spine so that it lays flat on the piano. It is a great help for beginners.
