Voluntaries for the Church Pianist

A collection of 21 two-stanza, hymn-based piano pieces, designed for the church pianist. These can serve at various places in the worship service: preludes, postludes, offertories, etc.  Short and easily learned, they are also good material for piano students in the teaching studio.  Each is named for the title of the hymn tune, along with a text that is often coupled with it.  Other texts may work as well.
