Hello, dear musicians!

I would like to ask you everybody if you know some music for piano that praises the Lord directly.
Please note, I am not interested with "absolute" music with no refferences now.
Thank you very much for your kind replies.

Martin

There are a great many Baroque organ chorales by Bach, Pachelbel, etc. that are written for manuals only and thus can be played on the piano. Also, you could 4-voice settings of the psalms.
But this may not be the kind of thing you are looking for.

I was thinking the same thing. I know of a bach chorale book setup for piano or organ
(371 four-part chorales for piano or organ)

you can preview the book here:

It might not be for everyone. I originally bought it as a kind of sight reading practice.

Oh yes, the Bach 4-part chorale collection. That is great stuff too. I started my organ adventure with these but have not played them since. Must really get back to these, they are handy for use in services.

Bach! Techneut knows a thing or two when it comes to Bach.
