Twenty-four hymn tunes that have long been a part of the fabric of personal meditation and public worship are presented by the warm and ringing notes of the dulcimer on Be Thou My Vision. Here are hymns that express the faith of those who have sung them for generations. Melodies are revealed with clarity and vitality, recalling a Sunday afternoon gathering in the parlor, the prelude to a small church service, or perhaps the closing notes of a Wednesday night prayer service.
The arrangements, created with affection, lead the listener on a path of memories, reassurance, and comfort. The dulcimers take the lead on all selections; the background of guitar, pump organ, and piano, and the soaring descants of the flute give the hymns an inviting variety of texture.
"Be Thou My Vision is the only recording I've ever owned in my whole life on which I've liked every piece. The selection of tunes is excellent...each one is a favorite." ~ Max Hunter, Marienville, Pennsylvania
