Faye Lopez's Music
Faye's piano hymn arrangements are some of her most popular, and for good reason! Check out two of her recent intermediate level piano collections—All Creations Sings and Peace on Earth (a Christmas collection). She also has piano music available through Alfred.
Her writing is consistently lovely and well-crafted. Pianists, the parts fit well in the hand (whether easy or advanced). Choir directors and vocalists, her part-writing is rewarding to sing.
I know a number of Music and the Church readers love a good playlist—check out Faye's YouTube channel. It has lots of beautiful recordings, including many of her solo piano music.
Thanks for sharing your music with us, Faye!
