Stories behind the hymns  Aug 28, 2006
Wonderful little book, a joy to read about all the great hymns.
Doubts about the research of the book  Aug 16, 2006
In scanning the book's index, I was surprised that there was no reference to Fred Waring and his musical organization, the Pennsylvanians, and their relationship with "Battle Hymn of the Republic." Having been a member of the Pennsylvanians, I know for a fact that it was Waring and his choral arranger Roy Ringwald who are responsible for re-discovering this obscure Civil War hymn and featuring it on one of their Chesterfield Pleasure Time broadcasts in the early 1940's. Singlehandedly, Waring brought this stirring patriotic anthem to the public consciousness, and from that point on he featured "Battle Hymn" as the closing song in all of his live concerts. Yet, there is no hint that these accounts are even mentioned in the book, which makes me doubt the research done by the author. I will pass on purchasing it.
Interesting and Useful  Jun 27, 2006
The stories are accurate and interesting. There is no sheet music and I do not miss it. I have found the stories useful as fodder for comments I make when playing music for audiences. There are several other similar books, all good, but I sure wish there were a lot more by this author. There is one about Christmas music, but two are still not enough.
