Concert pianist, teacher, and composer Marshall (Mike) Barnhouse has taken these beautiful, time-honored melodies (including the OBIKHOD, Tone I, famous from Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture) and crafted a variety of piano pieces that will enrich worship. Suitable for any intermediate-level pianist, these alluring works will especially capture the imagination of younger pianists.
