About The Composer
                                             These descants will be a welcome and beautiful enhancement to your congregational singing. Dr. Lorna Barker has done a brilliant job of bringing together two descants for 101 familiar and beloved hymn tunes - from seasonal songs and carols to traditional favorites for the regular Sundays of the church year.

For each hymn tune there are two descants - one that could be played by an amateur, and a second more suitable for the seasoned professional. The descants may be used separately - or they may be played together for a stunning effect.

The hymn melody is also transposed into the key appropriate for the Bb instrument, so that it can be played on alternate verses without the descant. For each selection there is a full score for the keyboard with the descants printed above, together with separate scores for the trumpeters or other Bb instruments. Several of the hymns are published in two keys to make them equally accessible to a variety of denominations.
Praise Him with the sounding of trumpet. (Psalm 150: 3)
