Album Notes
Celtic expressions of devotion to God are at once intimate and reverent; combining loving spontaneity with a powerful sense of the sacred.

This hymnody is a testament to the profound spiritual lives of Celtic Christians, from the famous 8th century prayer, "Be Thou My Vision", to the work of present-day hymn writers such as Keith Getty.

Here, the hymns are simply sung by a single voice and accompanied by the Celts' most beloved instrument, the harp, which has been immortalized in Celtic song, art and legend (most particularly by the Celtic people of Ireland, Scotland and Wales, whose music is collected here).

Hymns demonstrate continuity between our ancestors' spiritual struggles and our own, encouraging us to stand firm and gain the reward of a deeper relationship with Christ.

It helps us to set our minds on the things above and to contemplate the beauty and boldness of art in Heaven's service.

May all your steps walk in Heaven’s endless light;
make your sole purpose Christ. - "Celtic Blessing"

A Review:

"Soul Shelter is magnificent.
The music has blessed me with joy, peace and a knowledge of God.
I love it
I am swept away by the music.
Thank you so much for the best CD I have ever heard
This music should be in everyone’s home, in everyone’s iPod and anywhere else — AND PEOPLE SHOULD LISTEN TO IT.
It will bring them the peace that passes understanding in the most beautiful way
I am in tears of joy
Thank you so much

God bless you,

Ted Baehr"

Thank you for such beauty!
Beautiful voice, classical lyrics, perfect harp playing - what else is needed for a good album? Yes, the arrangements are very simple - only one instrument is used for them - but, as one famous artist said, "there can be much beauty in such simplicity". So, I think that this album is defenitely a mastrpiece.
