Hymns To Be Sung At The Pianoforte / edited by Tim Sharp.

Price: $40.00



This is the first volume in a series devoted to music found in archives at the various centers of Moravian culture. With a preface, appendix, critical report, and indices. Herbst was born in Kempten, Swabia, and lived much of his life in America. This is a collection of 172 songs, most of which were composed by Herbst. The songs were primarily meant to be performed as piano solos, and the Moravian hymn texts provided for the songs often do not match well with the music. Subscriptions invited.
