If you've had a bad day, your feeling low or you want to be lifted to new heights then this is an album that promises to deliver and much more besides. Anthony Burger has compiled some of the best songs ever written by Bill & Gloria Gaither. Not only does Burger's piano playing inspire you with his majestic style, but the orchestra and choir backing leave you with goose pimples - no, seriously! As an album, it takes you on a journey through the songs, from the meditational "He Touched Me", through to "Feeling At Home In The Presence Of Jesus" which features Bill Gaither in his own, unique crooning style. The album is also complimented by the beautiful piano instrumental "Gentle Shepherd". It concludes with a stirring "Let's Just Praise The Lord" which in itself sums up this entire album. The CD is also complemented with some interactive features, including a recipe for Gloria Gaither's Red Raspberry Cake! What more could you ask for from a superb album?
