Cherished Hymns for Guitar

A collection of favoirte hymns for classical guitar.



The great hymns of the faith are a treasure for the church. They unite our voices in worship today to the voices of saints of old. Early in the 1980s I began transcribing hymns for classical guitar. I played them for my own enjoyment and for preludes at church. When I began serving my first church leading music in worship, I used the transcriptions to accompany our singing. Since that time I have transcribed hundreds of hymn tunes. Though there are many I would like to include, these are but a few of my favorite and cherished hymns.
