Album Notes
The vision and production of this recording are the result of many miracles. The project has been surrounded by friends who care about the heritage, the craft, and the future of church music. We are grateful to God and the many people who offered meals, donations, friendship, prayers and talents.
We recognize Wendell Nisly, our fine conductor, who planned and interpreted the work of text and tune writers.
This album supplements the Hymns of the Church hymnal in content and style. We are grateful to John D. Martin, compiler of the hymnbook who offered his invaluable insight into hymnody, as we sought a varied selection of church music to launch this first collaboration between Oasis Chorale and Benchmark Press.
Our friend Brad Zabelski, of Traveling Tracks, again provided professional and personable service in recording and mastering this album.
The desired acoustic for recording came about through a conversation between Kevin Chun, in Philadelphia, and William Hoover, our Publicist. Terry Wible, Rector of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, and custodian William Claxton graciously gave us the use of a wonderful setting: tile floor, wooden benches, stone walls, and a high wooden ceiling. Since St. Luke’s is in a busy neighborhood, with planes, trains, automobiles and people doing the stuff of daily life, some of these sounds found their way into the music.
Open the hymnbook while you listen to this recording. May you worship with your friends, family and congregations, singing the wonders of His grace.
–Joseph Ebersole

. . . inviting singer and listener to thoughtful worship through artistic choral music sung skillfully.
Worship through song requires a heart tuned to God and a disciplined mind that is attentive to both words and music. Oasis Chorale is committed to nurturing this process in both singers and listeners.
Artistic music frequently challenges both singers and listeners. A voice does not automatically make a great singer, nor ears a thoughtful listener; we believe artistic music requires investment to be sung well and to be fully understood and appreciated. Oasis Chorale intends to help singers and audiences move one step forward in these skills.
This mission entails risk. Beauty is powerful, and rightly delights and draws us. But if beautiful music draws our focus more toward the music or the musician than to God, it has failed its purpose. God is the source and essence of beauty; music is an expression of His beauty. It is our intent that our music be a powerful reflection of God’s excellent beauty. Yet we maintain that musical excellence is not an end in itself, but is a lens through which we perceive, understand, and relate to God.
