Sacrament Hymn Introductions
[II] Free. For organ or piano, these are introductions to 29 Sacrament Hymns

might detract from the Sacrament Hymn itself. Clay Christiansen, Tabernacle
Organist, writes: “I have read through all of them and find each to be an
appropriate variation which can enhance the effectiveness of our worship
services, particularly the important Sacrament portion of that worship. They
are not unduly difficult for our organists of average ability and should work
equally well on organ or piano. I would be pleased to hear them used as a part
of the worship service of the ward I attend. They deserve to be available as an
effective tool of our more discerning organists everywhere.”
