Violinist David Davidson plays beautifully but Kingsway think it best to keep his name off the front of the CD. American David has an unerring ability to mix baroque-style classical phrasing with occasional glimpses of Celtic-style fiddle like on the terrific "Plainsong" opener. The material here is an interesting mix taking in Johann Sebastian Bach ("Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring"), several other venerable hymns and a Davidson original "Lord We Worship You". One final thing. On "Lo, How A Rose E'er Blooming", "Lord We Worship You" and "Doxology" there are interjections from a small vocal group which makes a nonsense of the "Instrumental expressions of worship" spiel on the sleeve. A very pleasant album that overcomes unimaginative packaging.

I have had this worship cd for very long time. I love these songs. But, It's so long time for me to know the lyric of the 8th song. Can you help find this lyric, because I can enjoy it so much. Thank you

The full lyrics are on the CD booklet.
It’s a David Davidson original.

Lord, we worship You
In everything we do
Lord, we worship You
With our hearts.

I manage a classical music store in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, My client is interested in Prelude to Joy KMCD 989, and Elegant Strings CD50024. Do you have a Canadian distributor where I may obtain the cds?
