My new tab book: Glories Immortal: A collection of Hymns from America’s Past. This book contains fifty hymns arranged for Appalachian dulcimer, as well as twenty-three pages of background information on American folk hymn traditions, the history of the hymns, lyrics, and tips for playing the tunes. The collection includes samples from six different traditions of American folk hymnody: the early American “tunesmiths,” Shaker music, Moravian music, shape-note (Sacred Harp) tunes, African American spirituals, and gospel/old-timey hymns. Most of the arrangements are for intermediate level players, but a few tunes have multiple versions to accommodate different skill levels and styles. The collection includes old favorites, such as “Amazing Grace,” “Simple Gifts,” "Go Tell It on the Mountain", and “Down in the Valley to Pray.” Other selections may be unfamiliar, but will introduce the player to an untapped treasure trove of lesser-known but beautiful hymns, for playing in religious settings as well as for personal enjoyment.

To order, please send a check for $17 (includes S & H) to : Nina Zanetti, 76 Willow Street, Guilderland, NY 12084.
