Listen to the Music!
As the world panics, with the threat of sickness seemingly everywhere, what better way to combat the negative thoughts and feelings of the masses than with a familiar, time-tested prayer? Julia Wade leads us to still waters with her peaceful, pure rendition of The 23rd Psalm. Peter Link’s gentle orchestration, prominently featuring harp, captures the comforting nature of these words perfectly. And as we practice social distancing by dwelling in our houses, let us not forget that we also “dwell in the house of the Lord forever”! This song is from Julia’s album Every Day, an 8 song CD that “…refers to the things I think about every day: the challenges, the prayers, and the victories – in my life, my community and my world. The songs explore not only the fears and limitations that confront us, but also the solutions that are available to us when we become still enough to hear them,” says Julia. Every Day includes but goes beyond sacred music in its reach, handling and embracing social and world issues as well.
