Wow what a beautiful CD! I was moved deeply with each song the first time I played it through. I had picked it up at Deseret Book in Bountiful Utah and was out doing errands. LOL well instead of errands I decided to take a little drive so I would not have to stop listening. What a powerful message in this collection of deeply inspirational and spiritual music, and what a perfect gift to give others. Alex sings with what is in her heart and soul in a way that you feel the message each song has to share. I have been touched with the warmth of the spirit many times in playing this CD at home as well as on the road. It is a sharing of the essence of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as well as sharing the wonderful message of the blessings of the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ to the whole world. Thanks Alex for putting this great CD together and a special thanks to Deseret Book for recognizing the great talent she has. It would be great if we had a Christmas CD with some favorite selections from Alex.
This Cd Be Still My a Soul is truly the voice of an Angel. She has a voice that is a true gift from God. I make sure it is the last thing I listen to before bed each night. I drift off to sleep and experience a wonderful nights sleep. We are so blessed to listen to the wonderful, Angelic voice of Alex Sharpe.
What I really love about this CD is it's simplicity. It is just Alex, her beautiful voice, with minimal accompaniment. I truly love every song on this CD. I was unfamiliar with several of them, but it didn't take long to grow to love them all. Thank-You Alex.
The songs on this CD makes you smile and feel good.
And since they are sung by an angels voice it is just perfect.
But don't take my word for it. Buy it and discover it yourself.
Alex Sharpe is an amazing international performer. A former member of Celtic Woman she brings an easy grace to familiar LDS favorites such as "I Am A Child of God" and "Joseph Smith's First Prayer". My personal favorite is "My Heart Was Home Again". The songs mixed with Alex Sharpe's voice and Irish charm gives the listener a truly uplifting experience. The music is so strong with the spirit there is no denying the truth of the message contained therein. My thanks go to Miss Sharpe for sharing her talent as well as her feelings about making the album.
It speaks to Alex Sharpe's character that her first solo album would be a collection of music sacred to her LDS, Christian heritage. Very unique from an Irish lady who had a successful if all too brief career with internationally renowned group Celtic Woman. All tracks save 2 are hymns familiar to LDS church members, but the arrangements are fresh and engaging. Even those unfamiliar with these hymns will enjoy their sound and spirit. Alex' fantastic voice takes them to a whole new level. So fine!!! My favorite, Abide With Me is a fantastic arrangement that includes a snippet of The Lord is My Shepherd that bears testimony of how the Lord will indeed abide! ,Track 7, His Name, is a new one to me. Not a hymn, but a lovely song of faith that again reflects Alex spirituality. The final track is a bonus for all her Celtic Woman fans that's included as a special gift to those who've loved and followed her from that perspective. Classy and thoughtful!!!
I love all the songs on this CD. Alex has the voice of an Angel and every song touches my heart to the core and brings me to tears. Alex is truly a gift from God.
While we often forget words, music enhances our memory & stimulates emotion, calm, compassion & care. Be Still My Soul nourishes our inner soul, & centres our thoughts & feelings on themes we cherish. Crafted by a gifted performer, the cd is enchanting. Some songs are familiar, some are seldom heard, but all are beautiful & meaningful. Looking forward to future releases by Alex Sharpe.
Seldom has music ever touched me as this CD as. I am so grateful that she put together this incredible collection. Beautiful music sung by Alex Sharpe whose angelic voice brings smiles and peace to you no matter how difficult life can be. "Be Still my Soul" has become my favorite CD to listen to at the end of the day. From "Joseph Smith's First Prayer" to "I am a Child of God" to "I'll go Where You Want me to Go" and so on the music is not only beautiful but Alex also has an unique way of expressing her love of our Heavenly Father you feel it with each track culminating with "I Know my Redeemer Lives" which will bring tears to your eyes and joy to your heart. May God continue to bless her with the voice of an angel. I look forward to future CDs from her and hopefully music videos to go with it. This CD is a true treasure that should be in everyone's library
Alex Sharpe's music reaches people because of where her heart is--she wants to use her amazing gift to lift others. You can easily feel this in her music. Alex's talent as an acclaimed international performer is transformed into a means to inspire us as she took a career risk to create this great album. Be prepared to feel something very moving when you listen to this.
Alex's incredible voice and wonderful arrangements make for a very uplifting and inspiring CD. While fairly new to the LDS music scene, she is no stranger to performing. Formerly of Celtic Woman and the London Theater, she uses her experience and talent to captivate her audience and take the listener to another place. Her Irish accent adds another lovely element to the music. This is a great gift for yourself or someone you love who needs a boost.
