Mixing classical influences with sacred hymns, James Conlee brings new interpretations of beloved melodies from both worlds. At times he combines actual pieces as with "Abide With Me/Pachelbel's Canon," "I Often Go Walking/Claire De Lune," and "Beautiful Savior/Sheep May Safely Graze." At other times classical influences are heard more subtly in the arrangements and delivery. Born from a desire to hear the great composer's music live on in our sacred traditional hymns, James brings new light to music that has inspired people for hundreds of years.

What a gentle yet powerful tribute to motherhood. Perfect for Mother's day or just to let your own Mother know you're thinking of her. Fantastic CD.

I bought this CD simply off of all the great reviews and I have to admitt, the price point was ideal. Anyway, I truly love this CD. I never even knew of James or his music but I know for sure I will keep an eye out for anything else he makes. It's simply beautiful!!

I bought this about a year ago because it was on sale and I like music for Sunday mornings. I have since bought several more copies to give as gifts because I love it so much. I love the hymns he chose and combined with the classical influences it is wonderful!
