This beautiful collection features 52 inspirational classics, from great hymns and spirituals to Contemporary Christian favorites, in easy-to-play piano/vocal/guitar arrangements.
Here you'll find Be Thou My Vision, Great is Thy Faithfulness, Just a Closer Walk With Thee, and What a Friend We Have in Jesus, side by side with Thy Word, Shout to the Lord, Lord I Lift Your Name on High and I Can Only Imagine. You'll also find the story of each song - from the 12th-century origins of "Jesus, The Very Thought of Thee" to the great hymn writers of the 18th and 19th centuries, to the backgrounds of contemporary songwriters Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, Darlene Zschech, and the band MercyMe.
As a bonus, the 2 CDs include full recordings of every piece in the book for your listening pleasure - with great recordings from the Reader's Digest archives featuring The Larry Dalton Singers, The Fireside Singers, The Don Hustad Chorale, and Rachel Robinson. The appendix includes a guitar chords chart with all of the guitar chords used in the book.
