“Songs of the Saints” like nothing ever heard before

The music on the CD (set for release on Feb. 6 2008) brings some famous saints to life. It focuses on their life story, their struggles, and their sacred beauty. The music blends ambient, classical, jazz, and some world music styles together to create a rich musical landscape. A special piece on the album is also an innovative, contemporary arrangement of “Amazing Grace”.
