For years, customers have requested a book of hymns to add their collection of World of Harmony Music books. These hymns not only sound beautiful on the zither, but also have really interesting stories behind the music. Can you answer these questions? You’ll be able to after reading this book!
Which hymn was reportedly played by musicians aboard the sinking Titanic? Which hymn is a doxology, and what is a doxology? Which hymn has only six words which use more than one syllable? Which hymn combines the efforts of at least five people who lived centuries apart? In this, the ninth book in the World of Harmony Music series, you’ll find a beautiful collection of music written for the beginner as well as those who are ready to play more complex arrangements. You can choose to play just the familiar melody, or you can add optional harmony notes for a more beautiful sound. To ensure your success and enjoyment, each hymn has been video recorded by Debbie Center. Let’s play them together!
