From Death to Life Eternal
by Douglas E. Wagner
Hope Publishing Co. catalog no. Book-8346, released 2008

This collection of seven familiar hymn tune settings for organ includes selections for Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Eastertide. The selections, all of easy-to-medium difficulty, are solidly and inventively arranged and include recommended registrations and manual changes. Use as preludes, offertories, postludes, hymn introductions, and concerts. The publisher has unfortunately omitted composer information of the original hymn tunes, but these are easily obtained from most hymnals.

Contents include:
Palm Sunday:
"Hosanna, Loud Hosanna!" (prelude)

Good Friday and Lent:
"What Wondrous Love Is This" (meditation)
"Ah, Holy Jesus" (chorale prelude)
"When Jesus Wept" (chaconne)

"This Joyful Eastertide" (voluntary)
"Now the Green Blade Riseth" (musette)
"That Easter Day with Joy Was Bright" (toccata)
