Harmonizations by Mr. Dennis Teitsma

Mr. Dennis Teitsma of Grace Canadian Reformed Church in Winnipeg has prepared harmonizations (including short preludes & postludes) for the 150 Psalms and 85 Hymns in the Book of Praise. The arrangements were composed specifically as instrumental accompaniment for unison congregational singing. He has very generously made these available free of charge by way of this website. Use the links to download the corresponding PDF document below. Professionally printed copies of a spiral-bound book of all 150 Psalms and 85 Hymns with laminated covers are available for the cost of printing ($12) plus shipping. These can be obtained by emailing Mr. Dennis Teitsma (c/o James Teitsma).
