Album Notes
I believe every hymn is simply a prayer set to music. Some of the hymns in this CD I learned as a boy growing up in the Baptist Church, singing some of them with my mother as a duet on Sunday mornings. Other hymns included here I learned as a young man in the Methodist and Lutheran churches, and there are a few I only learned after becoming Catholic.I consider it a blessing to have been exposed to such a wide range of Christian hymnody and have arranged over 80 hymns for guitar, which I have shared through my website with guitarists around the world. Although most melodies and words from this collection come from the 19th century, their themes can still lift our spirits today. Sometimes when I am playing my arrangements before Mass, I gaze upon the image of Christ and offer my music as a sacrifice of praise. One such time, I realized that I was actually praying through my guitar, and that was the inspiration for this CD.
Thanks to violinist Leslie Gries and flautist Amber Levetzow for their contributions to this music.
