Apologies to my friends in the blog, but I have been swamped lately. the bottom line is I continue to work on recording the music to the Psalms that I wrote over the past 10 years. Back in January the first nine recordings went to iTunes as an album (Psalms Vol. 1) and now I am working on Vol. 2.
As my brothers both are aware, sometimes we are driven to get something done. In my case, my retirement from active music ministry last year kicked me into putting my focus on recording the Psalms the way I originally intended. I am not making any bold statements on the content, but for some reason, as I worked in ministry, the music came very easy. I felt it was a gift from God, not as a definitive rendering of the Psalms, but as a personal connection and a lesson that God constantly reaches for us. He does not wait in Church for us to show up; He stands knocking at each or our doors in a way that we recognize. He speaks to us with the voices of those we know and those we interact with only briefly. He speaks to us in the Gospels and He speaks to us in our own hearts.
For some reason, I got this music, and for now, I will do whatever I can to put it out there. This one features my youngest son, Noah on lead vocals.
