About the Author

Rebecca Groom te Velde earned degrees in organ performance from Seattle Pacific University and the University of Western Ontario, also studying composition and church music. She continued her studies in Germany on a grant from the German Academic Exchange Service. An active performer and clinician on service-playing, she holds the Associate Certificate from the American Guild of Organists. She has published organ music with Oxford University Press and Darcey Press and choral compositions with Santa Barbara Music Publishing. She is organist of First Presbyterian Church, Stillwater, and adjunct instructor of organ at Oklahoma City University in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.


Rebecca uses well-considered harmonies in these settings, running a well-placed path between uncomfortable or jarring dissonance on the one hand and saccharine blandness on the other . . . In summary, this is an interesting and varied collection. The content and style should make it a very useful resource for organists in venues where more traditional hymnody is still in use, especially for Offertoiries or where short introductory voluntaries are needed. * Organz News, December 09 * GBP10 could hardly be better spent. This is an excellent collection for busy parish organists: settings of 28 standard repertoire tunes, with the composer's stated aims of service interludes, hymn introductions, inter-stanza interludes, communion meditations, preludes, offertories, and postludes, all splendidly met. The variety of settings does exactly what it says on the tin: 'There is something for everyone.' Whether I would have the courage to try out some of the uses in an actual service is another matter, certainly not without at least previously warning the choir. May we have another collection soon! * Church Music Quarterly, September 2009 * This is an excellent addition to the repertoire . . . These creations are well thought out, varied, inventive, mostly sight-readable and with no page turns . . . I have no hesitation in recommending readers to buy this inspiring collection. * Organists' Review, May 09 * Rebecca Groom te Velde's Hymn Miniatures bring notable ingenuity and skill to the ostensibly routine business of the hymn variation. The tunes are (with one possible exception) well-known in the UK, and every aspect of the volume, from pagination to registration to technical difficulty, has been planned with evident thoughtfulness. Quite apart from their liturgical usefulness, these pieces would make excellent teaching material and even offer templates for the canny teacher of basic improvisation. All are sitable for small instruments, and any organist in occasional or regular need of such material will find the collection invaluable. * Stepen Farr, Choir & Organ, July 2012 *
