Susan Millard Schwarz’s new album, GATHER US IN, compiles some of her favorite inspirational songs, coming from three faith traditions: Christian Science, United Methodism, and Judaism. Susan says, “It is a collaborative effort involving several outstanding musicians. Together, I believe we arrived at a unique expression of God’s love and grace. I hope you will enjoy it.”
A person of faith, Susan has great interest in whatever spiritual quality there may be within a piece of music. This may be a depiction of the natural world, as is found in German Lieder, or it may be a direct message from the Bible, as is frequently found in Christian Science repertoire. And sometimes, a song that carries a simple reminder that we are not alone is enough to deliver deep healing to a listener’s heart.
