Introduce your students to the great hymns. This collection is designed for students working in Suzuki Books 1 and 2. It is published for two violins, two violas, and two cellos, all in the key of D major, allowing for any combination of instrumentation. All parts can be played in first position. Accompaniment part is designed to add additional character to the hymn, and is slightly more difficult than the melody part. While the melodies may be familiar to many students, the history, writers, and composers may not be as well known. A brief discussion of each hymn, along with the text, is provided before the music. Students will enjoy these hymns and instructors will find this book to be a useful supplement to their repertoire.
