The four-volume collection consists of new compositions, important rediscoveries of out-of-print-pieces, and some well-known chorale preludes which have been transposed into the Hymnbook’s new keys. By providing two or three preludes for each of the particularly well-loved and frequently used hymns, "in Ewigkeit dich loben” offers a rewarding, multifaceted treasury of pieces from the Renaissance to our day. In addition to its usefulness in the church service, the collection also gives the organ teacher a chance to explore a colourful diversity of styles with his students.
Volume 1 has been awarded the German Music Edition Prize 1993.
“… One has to give the editors credit for their comprehensive knowledge of the organ literature of all periods and nations! It makes you want to play the collection right through from beginning to end. It should not be missing from any organist’s library! Happy is the hymnal which is introduced by these organ preludes.” (Württembergische Blätter für Kirchenmusik)
