Album Notes
This selection of songs is the culmination of a project that has been on my heart for a number of years. Some of the songs are new loves, and some are old favorites. However, they are all songs of faith. Composers and poets of all ages have communicated their spiritual yearnings through their art. My prayer is that you will hear God speak to you through these songs, no matter what the language. The recording is a compilation of sacred songs in different styles and different languages. It begins with a group of American Gospel songs, by Charles Ives, Aaron Copland and contemporary composers, Mark Hayes and Richard Walters. Representing the German language are five songs from the “Spanishes Liederbuch” of Hugo Wolf. This is followed by four songs from the French tradition, the two Hebrew melodies of Maurice Ravel, and songs by Francis Poulenc and Gabriel Fauré. The final group of songs are a solo cantata by John Carter based on African American spirituals.
