recommended by Christopher B., Organ Music Specialist

The Very Best of Diane Bish: Six Solos for Organ
Titles include: “Finlandia,” “God of Our Fathers,” “Joy,” “Joyful, Joyful,” “A Mighty Fortress,” and “O God, Our Help in Ages Past.”

The American Collection arr. Diane Bish
“The American Collection” contains five fabulous hymn arrangements by American organist extraordinaire, Diane Bish. Perhaps most exciting is the long-awaited printed version of “Jacob’s Ladder.” This concert favorite is finally available for others to play. Diane has also penned her concert arrangement of “Peace, Perfect Peace” and “The Lord’s My Shepherd” – wonderful, reflective selections. The collection rounds out with “A New Name in Glory” and “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing.”

Variations on Hyfrydol arr. Diane Bish
Diane Bish’s new setting of the much-loved Welsh hymn tune Hyfrydol is a welcome addition to the organist’s library. The four flexible variations – which include a Schumannesque first variation, an incisive Baroque-like variation, a lyrical sarabande, and a toccata finale – could be played in whole or in part as a concert suite, or used for hymn introductions and interludes.

Dance of the Trumpets by Diane Bish
Dedicated to Janet Jarriel, Bish’s friend and agent. An energetic piece for manuals and pedals, of intermediate to advanced difficulty. The music was inspired by Psalm 150.

Shall We Gather at the River arr. Diane Bish
Eight beautiful arrangements of classic hymns. Titles include: “All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name,” “All Through the Night,” “Come, Ye Thankful People, Come,” “Have Thine Own Way, Lord,” “Joy to the World,” “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God,” “Precious Lord, Take My Hand,” and “Shall We Gather at the River.”

Classical Organ Favorites arr. Diane Bish
