Subject: The Concordia Organist: Meeting a Genuine Need and Meeting It Very Well


The Concordia Organist has been purchased by hundreds and hundreds . . . and hundreds . . . of congregations that, for a variety of reasons, find themselves with no capable or competent person to play the organ for their church services. The Concordia Organist offers a complete recording of all the hymns in Lutheran Service Book and is completely adaptable for whatever the local situation requires. It allows a parish to provide music for the Divine Service. The Concordia Organist is also available via Lutheran Service Builder and offers the ability for the creation of a customized music recording for the entire service, easily and quickly.

The uses of The Concordia Organist are not only in situations where this is no organist. It can be used to create music for shut in calls, nursing home visits and services, funerals at funeral homes, and a variety of other uses in the parish, with smaller groups, etc.

If you are not familiar with The Concordia Organist, I encourage you to check it out and discover what a blessing it can be for you and your congregation. You can view the entire contents by downloading this file.
