Rhythm and Rhyme - CD
Item #: CD-534
Reaching out to the hearts and musical sensibilities of a wide range of Christian believers, Fr. Tim Valentine’s Rhythm and Rhyme unites both contemporary and classical sounds with inspired texts to create a wonderful new collection of music for the church.
"I Saw a River" delights in the images of water and light through the glorious sounds of a gospel choir, organ and horn section. Translated from one of St. Thomas Aquinas's great hymns to the Eucharist, "O Pilgrims' Meal" is an ideal communion hymn lending itself easily to unison congreageational singing. "Lamentation" is a heartbreakingly lovely piece with a Renaissance feel.
From contemporary to classical, spirited joy to heartfelt sadness, this great new collection envelops all in the “rhythm and rhyme” of the Church’s song.
