- Artist: Thomas Jones
- Format: CD
- Release Date:3/13/2007
In this collection of favorite songs, new and old, that celebrate the life and spirit of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Thomas Jones offers music for prayer and meditation. The title piece is his instrumental reflection of the uncertain feelings that gave way to total trust and faith in God, that Mary found in the quiet of her heart. In faith she said "YES" to God, and still unceasingly urges us to give our worship to her son Jesus, the Son of God.

From fancy country clubs to jazz clubs and society soirees, from dusty dives and rowdy saloons, from concert halls to recording studios, to exciting years playing ragtime on steamboats up and down the Mississippi River system. It is an amazing experience. I am blessed to know many incredible people and enjoy countless treasured friendships. There is another side of my music. Through the years there's rarely been a time I haven't played in church on a regular basis. I have always been in awe over the great and powerful ways that music brings us closer to God. To play before the Lord has always been my delight, and a fulfillment beyond words. My music ministry is based in the choir loft of St. Mary's Church in Orono, Maine, where, for the past dozen years or so it has been my privilege to play a beautifully restored Estey pipe organ. It is here, and also on the recordings of my 'peaceful piano music' that you will hear the music of my heart.'
