The reason these pieces are so wonderful is because they 'are' familiar. There is a spiritual element to Ginger's Piano that will fill your soul. Thank YOU!
Ginger's arrangements give a wonderful new take to many of my favorite hymns. I love listening to her CD on Sunday mornings and whenever I need something peaceful to help me calm down or relax. Everyone should check out her arrangement of 'If You Could Hie to Kolob'
Ginger makes the music come to life and her talent is tangible through these hymns. I am not normally one to listen to any church music on CD, but she has a particular way of drawing me in. A wonderful CD by an incredible artist and person!
Sabbath Impressions is a nice attempt at some background easy listening music, but if one is looking for something original and fresh, this is not the CD. Each piece is featured in the same key as the hymnbook, all melodies and rhythms are the same. It sounds more like embellishments of one playing from the hymnbook with the same harmonic structure, only adding an arpeggiated bass line with an occasional flourish or interlude between verses. All arrangements sound the same. I don't listen to it and think, 'I want to learn how to play that arrangement!' Two stars for effort.
Ginger is a fantasitic pianist and such a great person!!! Her beautiful music brings peace and happiness. I was able to attend her fireside and was so impressed with her kind heart and friendly personality.
THis Cd is wonderful and inspirational. It brings the spirit in the room. The songs are inspiring and sooothing. THis is a must CD. Great Job to Ginger very talented!!!
