Augsburg Fortress, 2012

Piano solo (Medium)

This collection of hymn settings is appropriate throughout the liturgical year. Arranged in a variety of lengths and styles, this collection has pieces suitable for a variety of settings within a service as well. Beyond its utility, Timothy Shaw’s outstanding interpretations make this a treasure for the church pianist’s library.

…Across the three Augsburg collections, all the arrangements generally “lie well” under the fingers, though Shaw’s arrangements seem more technically involved than Roberts’ or Raabe’s. Again, though, there are several in the Shaw collection that are directly accessible. Practice time will vary for the experienced pianist/keyboardist, depending on individual ability…In general, these tunes are the most traditional among the three volumes; the practice required to work out harder portions (running thirds, sixths, octaves, and fast scales) of these scores will be worth the time. (WorshipArts, Jan/Feb 2014)
