Product Description

Award-winning composer and arranger Kurt Bestor and photographer Mark Mabry have once again teamed up with the flute-and-harp duo Opus 2 in the production of Sweet is the Work. This missionary-themed compilation focuses on the peaceful subset of beloved missionary hymns, and emphasizes the gentle and thoughtful side of missionary service. Songs such as A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief, Brightly Beams Our Father's Mercy, Joseph Smith's First Prayer, Army of Helaman, and many others add a gentle glow to the existing canon of missionary music. An ideal gift for missionary study or reflection time, and the perfect gift for the missionary in all of us. Songs include:
  • Faith of Our Fathers
  • Sweet is the Work
  • Have I Done Any Good?
  • The Day Dawn is Breaking
  • Dear to the Heart of the Shepherd
  • A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief
  • Carry On
  • Onward Christian Soldiers

This is nice inspirational music that is soothing and is great background for other activities. The instrumental hymns allow the words to run through your mind uninhibited. It's great thanks.
