Originally written as a companion volume for his incredibly successful Six Choral Introits for the Church Year (WLP 005783), these well-crafted introductions and accompaniments for standard hymns also stand alone as a resource every organist will want on their shelf! The brief introits (which can also serve as an interlude between the choral singing of one of the six introits and the congregation's singing of the hymn) are followed by fresh yet instantly accessible accompaniments. Included are:

Advent: Veni, Emmanuel/O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
Christmas: Adeste Fideles/O Come All Ye Faithful
Epiphany: Puer Nobis Nascitur/What Star Is This?
Lent: Parce, Domine/Hear Us, Lord, We Pray Easter: Easter Hymn/Jesus Christ is Risen Today
Pentecost: Lambilotte/Come, Holy Ghost

Proulx combines the art of the master composer's innovativeness in the introits with a pastoral musician's ear for solid, well-grounded writing to support congregational song.

If your choir isn't already singing the Six Choral Introits, these fine organ pieces will no doubt convince you that they belong in their repertoire, as these Introits and Harmonizations belong in every organist's repertoire!
