The CD album that they sent me is an instrumental work, published this year (2014), and recorded by there oldest four children: Derek (20), Deborah (19), Eugene (17) and Kyle (15) as seen on the cover above.
The first thing that I have to say is that these "kids" are really good. As I understand from the album cover, Kyle plays lead acoustic guitar, ukulele, twelve string guitar, and electric guitar. Also, Eugene plays bass guitar, Deborah plays the harp, and Derek the rhythm acoustic guitar. Listening to the songs, its amazing how good that they play, and how nicely the instruments fit together. Clearly, they have practiced countless hours in preparation for preparing this.
The sound that comes out is peaceful, reassuring, and light, the music you would play in the background just about anytime; I turned on the album, on my mp3 player just this morning as I was outside gardening. I can see myself listening to the songs on this album in the future, specifically after a long day or stressful experience, even as I can whole heatedly recommend the CD album for everyday use.
As far as individual songs go (complete list here) there are some that Ive never heard, as well as many that I have in one form of another. The very first tract is my favorite, Come Thou Fount, followed by number 10: 10,000 reasons/ Bless the Lord. You can sample it below.
If you are interested in buying a copy or two of the album, know that the album is not available for purchase thru Amazon. So you'll have to order via this link, also above. They are $12
