Patricia Backhaus, Thirty-Three Hymn Descants and Melodies for All Seasons


A reproducible collection of festive descants by Patricia D. Backhaus. Each descant is provided over the melody in both C and B-flat. The descants and melodies correspond to the keys and harmonizations found in Lutheran Service Book: Accompaniment for the Hymns, and the keyboardist should play from that book.
