If the harp is the instrument of angels, then this album demonstrates fully the beauty of Heaven. With its distinctive individual sound the harpist Carol McClure provides a refreshing rendition of loved worship songs and hymns. Gentle and relaxing, each note wafts and floats in the air. This is particularly so for Graham Kendrick's "Shine Jesus Shine". The meditative and soothing sound is truly uplifting and inspiring. "Drop thy still dews of quietness" is the first line of a verse in the famous hymn "Dear Lord And Father Of Mankind". The beautiful performance of this verse creates a true reflection of the sentiment implied by the lyrics "The beauty of thy peace." This album is one of four by Carol McClure. I have particularly ejoyed this album, Carol has indeed united the unique sound and beauty of the harp with a true reflection of the expression of love to the 'Fathers World'.
