Lilies and Simple Gifts
Lilies and Simple Gifts appeals to a wide range of tastes. It includes calming songs such as "Be Still and Know," alternating with the thrilling grandeur of "The Holy City." A modern "Psalm 23" and "Song of Ruth" are two uniquely beautiful and moving pieces that increase in effect with repeated listenings.
It's a CD of originality that feels like a good friend.
Eye on the Sparrow
Eye on the Sparrow is another finely balanced mixture of style, period, and mood. This triumphant and beautiful CD includes a new arrangement of the song, "His Eye is on the Sparrow" which blends crisp and clear vocals with the accompaniment's bird-motif and a hint of gospel. The tenderness of Gounod's "The King of Love" and "Ye Shall Not Sorrow Anymore" are offset by the grandeur of César Franck's "Bless the Lord O My Soul." Bach's "My Heart Ever Faithful," at the apex of this album, is remarkable for its joy, and Malotte's hushed and exultant "Lord's Prayer" serves as the CD's resounding "Amen!"
