For accomplished vocalist Theresa Donohoo, liturgical music has always been a family affair, most often traveling and performing with her husband Rory Cooney (with their son in tow) and family friend Gary Daigle. Now, with Family Resemblance, Theresa sings of the larger family that we are in Christ.
The songs on this recording are a testament to the ups and downs, joys and trials of the family of God, and the ever-present faith that leads us through. Theresa seemlessly interprets the trusting and faithful text of The Deer's Cry: I Arise, a simply magnificent piece of music. "Too Many Walls" and ""Lost and Found," with their themes of conflict, forgiveness, and reconciliation, are re-recorded here (originally from Rory Cooney's musical, Lost and Found.) Finally, Theresa delivers an upbeat and inspiring rendition of "Lord of the Dance," bringing to life the story of Jesus especially for children.
Throughout the recording, Theresa's voice is at once strong and tender with a spirited Irish lilt, stirring the emotions of the soul. A wonderful collection by a inspired vocalist!
