Ann Beresford - Healing My Aching Heart

Saturday 1st June 1991
Ann Beresford - Healing My Aching Heart

STYLE: MOR / Soft Pop
LABEL: Independent
FORMAT: Cassette Album

Reviewed by Tony Cummings

A privately financed praise-orientated album which despite being cut at ICC studios and sporting a full colour inlay card, has the stamp of 'amateur' all over it. The songs are occasionally tuneful, more often ordinary, the lyrics clich├ęd and the singing weak. Maybe a good producer could have pulled it around...maybe

I heard Ann when she ministered to us so beautifully at our church 'away ' events back in the 'nineties,' where I think everyone was touched by her songs and gentle and loving ministry. She is a gifted musician, has a beautiful voice and shares her songs in a natural and gentle way.
I have particularly found her songs, 'Jesus, Your name' and 'Be still' minister deeply the healing and comforting presence of Jesus. I have given a number of copies to people experiencing pain and deep hurt, and they have appreciated them too.
I wondered if you got as far as listening to these, Tony? They are extraordinarily beautiful.
In fact Ann, I was referred to your web-site to ask for 2 more copies of the CD of 'Healing my Aching Heart'. Would it be possible to order these from you, please? I need one of them as soon as possible, please!

I met Ann B. 3years ago She gave me a CD "Love of my Life" if this is the same Lady then let's hear more from her. There's nothing amateurish about her singing. So genuine,peaceful, beautifully written and delivered. Where are you Ann?

Iwould say i have grown up with this ladys voice always as a young woman in my twentys and so have my children, who are now teens them selves. She sings with depth, feeling, and to top that such love for her fellow man. A truly inspiring voice and always with a message. If we all lived by her beautiful example what a perfect world it would be. xx

Did this man (Tony Cummings) actually listen to the same album as the rest of us? This is a truly inspiring album which has brought peace, hope and healing to many people in both good and bad times. Ann Beresford has a brilliant singing voice and actually writes her own songs.
