I didn't think I was going to like this disc. One glance at the cover told me it was going to be California meets Celtic. And it did prove to be West coast Celtic. But principle composer, arranger and producer, John Andrew Schreiner has done a superb job. This is one excellent album. The variety of forms, from plainsong to folk, the different voices used according to the style of each piece, the carefully chosen words and music all relating in different ways to our communion with God, all point to a master of his craft who is not only supremely gifted, but is also prepared to plan carefully and work hard as well. A potent mix. There are 17 tracks in all, some traditional, some original compositions, but all beautifully arranged and performed. If you like worshipful, meditative music with a bit of creative thought behind it, this is for you.

I PURCHASED THIS CD IN 2001. I LOVED THE MINISTRY OF THE ANCIENT OF OLD LITURGICAL WORLD COMBINING WITH THE CONTEMPORARY CHURCH. THE HOLY SPIRIT MINISTERED MIGHTILY TO BOTH MY FAMILY AND ME THROUGH THIS MERGE OF WORSHIP SETTINGS. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE MORE OF THIS.

My grandson died on March 27, 2009 and the song "Not My Will" sung by Communion really touches my heart and I've been trying to get it to send to my daughter that lost her only son. I first heard it on WAFT out of Valdosta, GA on 1101.1FM Christion radio last year; and in the last week or so I've heard it on that station twice. What can I do to get the cd that Communion made with that song?

It is such a meditative CD, I love it. God bless you.

Amazing, anointed CD. Very worshipful. God has used this album for healing in my own life. A word of mouth CD. You will probably want to buy for your friends after hearing.
