Clearly there's demand for the Southern gospel pianist's back catalogue so Spring Hill are currently reissuing past albums by the deceased king of the keyboard. This very pleasant 10 track CD kicks off with the only piano instrumental recording of the country gospel classic "The Unclouded Day" I've heard! It then continues with the wistful B J Thomas oldie "Home Where I Belong". Bill Gaither adds some vocals to "Feelin' At Home In The Presence Of Jesus" while other outstanding tracks are Anthony's virtuoso performances of "Holy Ground" and "In Christ Alone". Producer Bill Traylor has added some light choral backings to several of the evergreen songs which gives them a fresh feel but it's the dazzling piano skills of Mr Burger which take centre stage.


Sample Track Listing:
1. The Unclouded Day [Listen]
2. Home Where I Belong [Listen]
3. Holy Ground [Listen]
4. Feelin' At Home In The Presence Of Jesus [Listen]
5. Morning Has Broken [Listen]
6. A Mightly Fortress Is Our God [Listen]
7. Just A Little While - Meeting In The Air [Listen]
8. What A Friend We Have In Jesus [Listen]
9. In Christ Alone [Listen]
10. Champion Of Love [Listen]

Product Description
Timeless classics from piano virtuoso child prodigy Anthony Burger.

Anthony Burger was a piano virtuoso with an incomparable style of playing, who commanded a stage with his keyboard acrobatics. A much loved member of the Gaither Homecoming family for more than a decade, Anthony Burger was also a celebrated solo performer and recording artist. Audiences around the world marvelled at the skill he displayed on great old hymns and convention songs, but the child prodigy was equally at home playing big Broadway show tunes or classical compositions. His untimely death in 2006 left a profound void. Anthony Burger Productions, in conjunction with Spring Hill Music Group, is releasing a new CD, A Mighty Fortress, featuring the renowned keyboardist playing many timeless classics.
