The new 2019 updated eBook edition of a “Resource List for Organists: Arrangements & Accompaniments of Hymns in the LDS Hymnal” is now available
Compiled by DeeAnn D. Stone
On March 17, 1999, the website Resources for LDS Organists was launched by DeeAnn Stone. The site’s purpose was to be a place where organists could find help in planning their music for church services, using a list posted there of available hymn arrangements and accompaniments that DeeAnn began to compile in 1993. The site now has many more resources and helps added to it.
To observe the website’s 20th anniversary, DeeAnn has made extensive revisions, additions, corrections, and updates to the booklet she offers at the website called a “Resource List for Organists: Arrangements and Accompaniments for Hymns in the LDS Hymnal.” What started out as a 20-page booklet in 1993 has now become a whopping 459-page eBook, with hundreds of new titles of hymn arrangements and accompaniments. Each title is linked to the publisher or distributor of the books the titles are found in, plus there are internal links to help navigate the eBook.
The PDF eBook can be purchased at Resources for LDS Organists for $25. There are three other purchasing options, too, if organists don’t want to buy the entire eBook. (A hard copy isn’t available, however, because of the length of the eBook, making it too expensive to print off and mail, which would cost at least $50-$70 per copy.)
While at Resources for LDS Organists, be sure to check out the new links to very informative videos created by the National AGO to aid new organists in learning how to play the organ, as well as other helpful and interesting videos from other sources. There’s also other information at the website that would help organ students and new ward organists (and there are even helps for Primary Music Directors). Enjoy!
