After listening to the samples, I am going to have to get this CD. It has several of my favorites on it and the new ones are so peaceful.

Loved this CD. The songs are perfect. The only complaint is that it is very hard to understand the words on many of the songs. It is nice music, but would be great to understand without having to get out the folder from the cd case.

Loved it. Please try to include a little sheet of the words to the music in the cd's so that we can be more fully enlightened as we enjoy the melody. As is typical with choirs, unless you know the lyrics it's not always easy to discern each word. Thank you.
