Version: Intermediate - Advanced Piano Solo This is Heather Sorenson's first book for Shawnee Press. Heather's piano arrangements are becoming increasingly popular as competition pieces at the state and national levels, and her previous books for Lillenas were very well received. Heather hails from the Dallas, TX area. Sacred Nocturnes includes 12 pieces - both originals and arrangements of familiar hymns - arranged for intermediate to advanced players. Includes a lively version of Be Thou, My Vision (including sections in 4/4!), a bluesy "Shall We Gather By the River?", and equally beautiful arrangements of This Is My Father's World, All Through the Night, Nearer My God to Thee, and others. Church pianists will appreciate two important aspects of this book - the arrangements are challenging, and very fluid and moving (not static.) Suitable for communion and other moments of contemplation. ©2008, Book & CD, 56 pages.
