Album Notes
Understanding the Album:
Awe and Wonder is a joyful celebration of Christ's love in coming to earth to redeem lost humanity. Fresh original music and beautiful songs from many centuries create an atmosphere of praise and adoration. With silvery vocals, classical guitar, Celtic woodwinds, spacious orchestration, and ethereal choir, these songs and carols touch the heart with beauty and truth. "Here let all, great and small, kneel in awe and wonder."(Gerhardt) Never shallow, this music provides a refuge of wholesome worship that recognizes the significance of Jesus' flesh-and-blood entrance into our world. "The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever." (Westminster Shorter Chatechism). Christ Candle Celtic has chosen songs for Awe and Wonder which fulfill that high calling. The group prayerfully seeks to impart the light and the fragrance of the knowledge of Christ through the holy joy of worshipful music.

Responses to the Music:
"I love listening to your music during meditation times or while studying.... "
"Your songs are all so wonderful--so much diversity--just lovely!"
"You sound like Celtic Woman."
"I love the place your music takes me to."
"Dustin plays a really sweet guitar."
"Your music is healing."
"I love the worshipful moments in your songs."
"Words can't describe how beautiful this is."

Springs from the Desert:
Far from making it difficult to envision green pastures and still waters, living in a desert environment brings intensified longing for spiritual refreshment. It adds richness to the scope of expression. Out of a community that values cultural diversity, new possibilities spring. Each band member knows worship music as life-giving, a way to grow under adversity. The desert life calls one to hone priorities, notice small wonders, expect renewal. Gratitude for life, God's gift, is at the core of Christ Candle Celtic. Dry, thirsty land intensifies water's sweetness. Pastel beauty makes a place and time set apart. Let cleansing winds blow through the wide places of your soul. Let sacred music ring from canyon to star. Desert wanderers know and love their Shepherd. Healing streams flow as the Good Shepherd touches the heart and art of these musicians.
