“Abide with Me,” “Amazing Grace,” and “Shall We Gather at the River” are the three hymn tunes in this collection that Paul Basler arranged for horn and piano.  These three pieces may be performed individually or as a suite.  These pieces are accessible to younger players, including high school students, due to their manageable range and recognizable melodies; however, they are anything but simple.  Basler’s arrangements are melodically familiar, but by altering rhythm, tempi, and infusing creative harmonies, these tunes are approached and presented in a fresh, innovative manner.  They are appealing to all generations, are appropriate for most church services, and also make a nice addition to a recital program.
