- (Julie-Ann Aguhob)
- Format: CD
The enthusiastic response to the music I performed with Peter Vantine at the 2003 One Foundation concert is the motivation for creating our first collaborative CD. For this recording we've chosen: poems, praise songs, songs of suffering and longing, and songs of salvation and hope. In our lifetime we will experience suffering and long for peace, but listen to the words of King David as he cried out to God saying: 'Arise O Lord, deliver me O my God'. We too can cry out to God and He will faithfully deliver each one us. It is my prayer that these songs lift your heart, give you hope, and draw you closer to the one true God who loves you and gives you peace. Thank you for your encouragement and support for our first recorded musical collaboration. Thank you to my beloved family who prays without ceasing, and dear friends who share in my laughter and tears. Thank you Lord God for musically inspiring great composers, specially Peter Vantine, to write beautiful music that let me sing of my faith in your son Jesus Christ. All praise, glory, and honor belong to you alone. Hallelujah! Listener Reviews: 'I was struck by the worshipful quality and beauty of it.
