Album Notes
The soothing melodic lines and soaring climaxes of Near to the Heart will thrill your soul. This music brings peace in a world that doesn't have peace, it brings comfort when one needs comfort and it brings joy to light up one's day. Already having blessed hundreds of listeners around the world, this music proves its worth over and over again to draw one closer to Inspiration and away from the busy stressed pace of the world. Henry Higgins is definitely blessed with a talent from God to produce this God-inspired music.

This album provides 16 tracks, all original arrangements by Henry Higgins, done in the very unique style that Henry has. It combines the best of classical, relaxation/meditation, impressionism and modern contemporary styles to paint a world in the ears of the listener that speaks peace, freedom from the cares of this life and inspiration to a higher Life one can have. Most of the arrangements are done by 'pure inspiration.' Henry chooses the hymn to record, and may spend a few moments roughly working out some kind of outline in his mind of how it will go, and then after prayer will begin recording and will play whatever he feels inspired to play. At the end, after listening to it, then there is editing to be done and then the recording for that song is complete. This therefore makes these arrangement compositions very unique as they are very much 'inspiration spur of the moment' style arrangements that are refreshingly free from the strict playing that most other inspirational hymn albums follow. To God be all the glory, great things He has done with this album!

Near to the Heart was first released in Feb 28, 2012 in America. Since then, it is beginning to travel around the world as the popularity of it increases. Near the end of 2012, it made strong inroads into Southern Africa as the pianist spent time over there working in ministry and also performing his music. Also, it is beginning to have its influence in Australia, the home country of Henry Higgins.

May this music also bless you, strengthen you and inspire you in your walk with God!

A Musical Blessing
I recently purchased a copy of Henry Higgins' album "Near to the Heart." As the title of my review suggests, this album is indeed a musical blessing. The hymns are old favorites that most of us have heard and sung many times over. However, Henry’s particular style and arrangement have made them fresh and new again. I have found them to be both majestically inspiring and quietly soothing all at the same time. I give this album my highest recommendation!
