Wonderful! The first time I listened to this cd I was very moved. The 2nd time I followed along with the words printed on the cd insert. That time I was overcome! If you want to understand the atonement better and connect to Christ in a more deep and personal way then you want this cd! Our family has enjoyed this masterpiece for well over a decade!
The message and rendition of this is first rate. I've enjoyed it for nearly two decades.
This music is inspired. Be sure to read the liner notes for a better understanding of what's going on. Everyone should experience this.
I wanted to take a moment to share with you my feelings on the 'The Garden', the allegorical oratorio that is performed by The Chords of Faith. I can tell you that is truly one of the most moving performances that I've been listened to in the past 30 years of my membership in the church. Our own David Wright performed in this as a soloist playing the part of the Ram. And any of you that know how great a singer that David is, imagine 7 other soloists and an entire choir that are equally as magnificent. It helped open my eyes to the Love of our Savior through a different light. One that I could truly relate to. It helped strengthen my testimony and help me feel the love my Lord has for me. It did indeed live up to all the billing as a truly tremendous musical. You could feel the spirit through the music so overwhelmingly. If you have ever wanted to be edified through music, then this is a blessing beyond compare. I only wish I was blessed with the kind of musical talent to be able to sing like that. Those that did perform are truly blessed with a gift.
Simply superb! A must have for any music collection. Both the music and lyrics are powerfully moving. The Spirit washes over me each and every time I turn it on. Breathtaking!
Awesome is one word that comes to my mind when I think of this amazing CD. This is one of the most moving and emotionally stirring musicals I have ever heard. It really strikes a spiritual cord with its masterful portrayal of the infinite atonement of our Savior and the redemption He offers to us all. The power and majesty of this musical allegory is some of the greastest I have ever felt. I was moved to tears a couple of times, that is how powerful it is. I recomend this to everyone. Listening to this CD is a wonderful and deeply spiritual experience. Missing it would be a shame.
