These pieces for violin and organ are based on folk melodies that are commonly used in contemporary hymnbooks. As such, they are individually useful for worship services. As a group they work quite well for recitals or study purposes. Protestant congregations will most likely be familiar with some of the melodies — some perhaps even all four. Liturgical churches will certainly know “Picardy”, and may have experienced one or more of the other melodies. (Picardy is also available here as a single publication: DRY-019.) Even if listeners are not familiar with the melodies, they are very charming, enjoyable and immediately accessible tunes, and their settings are varied and practical for the performers.
