The Pedagogy of Hymn Playing
For the vast majority of organists no other genre of music is performed more often than the hymn. Few organists today make their living solely outside the church. And for the church organist, no other duty or service will have the same kind of impact upon a congregation as that of leading a group of people in church song.
