We are Steve and Kristi Oostdyk. While growing up, Kristi accompanied her home church in hymn singing and has served as a worship leader and choir director over the years. She currently teaches music at a school near Grand Rapids, Michigan and accompanies a large community choir in West Michigan. Steve is also a lifelong musician and performer who has spent several years as a church accompanist and worship leader. Pfeiffer House Music, named in memory of Kristi's grandmother, Adele Pfeiffer of Byron Center, Michigan.
In 2005, we've put our church accompanist skills to good use by recording 300 hymn accompaniments on piano in a 'from the hymnal' style so churches without musicians can make their 'joyful noise' in the good sense.
However, in 2018 we began the process of rerecording the hymns, this time in both high and low keys, with better recording equipment and technology to capture the best quality possible sound from a tuned Steinway grand, the best possible sound from a real organ. We currently have 4 volumes completed (100 hymns) plus a 25-song Christmas collection. Volume 5 25 hymns is coming on October 14, 2019. Thanks for visiting.
