A perennial resource, Dedicating An Organ gathers in one place everything necessary for planning the dedication service for a new organ. Interdenominational in breadth, this booklet contains sample services, invocations, litanies, prayers, and hymns. The final section, “The Organ in Prose and Poetry” provides verses by great poets and noted writers that are appropriate for inclusion in dedication programs. The service elements can be interchanged and condensed as necessary in order to customize the material for the occasion. Not just for dedications of organs, but most of the text can be incorporated into such diverse services as recognition of choir members (Choir Sunday), and other musicians, a new piano, and even handbells.
