Blue Grass Hymns

I love this music. I have played it so much my tape is getting thin. I have been a church musician for many years, and I am use to hearing hymns being played on either the organ or piano; however, these acoustic instruments sound beautiful. I call these Blue Grass Hymns.

This music is just beautiful! I bought the CD on sale and am going to go back for more for gifts. It changes from ethereal to blue grass, so varied and such good arrangements. Plus the choice of hymns is just perfectly suited to the instruments. Wow, what a talented musician! Can't say enough good. Love it!
