About the Music

These arrangements are particularly well suited to the guitar quartet, as the arrangers are well-versed in the medium and have carefully considered issues like tessitura and ensemble. The parts are as equal as they can be and there is no musical line that is unimportant. The style of scoring used in this edition – that is: putting the first and third guitars on the first staff and the second and fourth on the second staff - makes the music extremely versatile. The hymns can be played as quartets for players of modest attainment, but also work very well as duos for more advanced guitarists.

These are beautiful compositions that just happen to be hymns and should be played for their musical merit and not only in church services. Even though these versatile arrangements are playable by student quartets of modest attainment, they are not over-simplified or in any way inappropriate for more advanced players.
