Concordia Publishing House has commissioned Timothy Shaw to write a new setting of a haunting medieval tune from the 13th century, “Mitten wir im Leben sind” (“In the Very Midst of Life”), which will be be included in the forthcoming Piano Prelude Series, volume 7 (tunes beginning with M). Building upon the success of Hymn Prelude Library, Concordia is now embarking on another exciting project: Piano Prelude Series. Like the Hymn Prelude Library, this collection will feature preludes on all the hymns of Lutheran Service Book, but this time for piano.
