The Church Pianist: Piano Offertory Resource

This is the time of year that I research piano offertories for church  and recital pieces for my students to play at the upcoming spring recital.

 The following book “In the Light of His Glory” by Martha Mier, contains twelve late intermediate to early advanced piano arrangements.  The book was produced by Alfred Publishing Company.  I like Alfred’s website because they show sample pages from the different sacred piano books or any other music for that matter. The sample pages from this book sound beautiful! 

 The three samples available at the time of my search were: “Near to the Heart of God” , His Eye is on the Sparrow” and “What a Friend We Have in Jesus”.

    Hi Jenifer!

    I bought this book as a Christmas present for a teenager at my church who will begin to serve with us through music this year. She has a good training background in classical piano and I am sure she will be able to play beautifully.

    I personally like Martha Mier and I have her book “Hymns for Meditation” also from Alfred. I love all of the arrangements in it and play it quite often.

    I hope your recital will be blessed by the Lord and He will be with every one of your students when choosing and practicing for the recital.

    It’s always so good to hear from you. How exciting that you have a teenage girl helping out with the music at your church.
    I just ordered “In the Light of His Glory”. Looking forward to seeing all of the arrangements.

    Thanks for your visits 🙂
