Thank you to the Independent Christian Music reviewers at Solid Ground for taking time to share their thoughts about our 5th CD, Hymns Old & New. Here are a few of our favorite comments from the article.
The beautiful thing about a choir is you can take a group of people who range from exceptionally skilled to people who can barely carry a tune, teach them parts and to sing together and the result is something that is beyond the scope of what a small group of skilled musicians could ever create. Under the direction and patience of a good leader, choirs can make the mundane excel and conquer and deliver the divine.
Classic fanfare, strings and some contemporary band elements dot each of the songs, but the true gem of each track is the East Valley Chorale. What makes this group special, is you truly feel that when they are singing classic hymns like “It is Well” and “Blessed Assurance” that each individual voice believes what they are singing is real and meaningful. That they are, indeed, of one mind and accord in their mission of delivering each song.
