Congregational singing often becomes monotonous and prosaic when unrelieved four-part harmony from the hymnal is used for every stanza. Creative Hymn Accompaniments can greatly enhance the vitality of well-known tunes, especially those with many stanzas.

These accompaniments avoid extreme departures from traditional harmonies and instead provide alterations which will add interest and variety. 40 pages.
