Ive always been a fairly ambitious person, but with advancing years, ambitions began to retreat: yetone remained obstinate and unsatisfied. In my travels, I had mentioned it to quite a number ofchurches who, for the most part, thought very favourably of this remaining ambition to put on CDmany of the choruses that we loved to sing in churches, in rallies, and around the piano in times longpast.I wondered whether this ambition would ever be fulfilled, and then came a communication from mycolleagues in Fraserburgh who shared this ambition with me. This double CD album is the result, andI am for ever indebted to these wonderful people.Many years ago, the young people sang the same choruses as the older folk, and then came thedivision, alas, largely brought about by music. Is it too much that these discs could somehow bridgethe gap once more? And even if it is, we present these songs to the following generation, and trustthat God will make them as much of a blessing to you as they were to us.Lyrics / Track Listing
The Moody and Sankey meetings of the 1870's inspired a great wave of evangelistic activity in many parts of Britain and the English Concertina came into extensive use in Mission Hall work and in the Salvation Army. Because of its portability it was widely used in open air work and in seaside summer missions.Due to the advent of modern electronics, the use of the Concertina as an instrument of sacred music is now a dying tradition.In this album, two surviving players of that era, Peter Donald and Gordon Haxton, bring a selection of some of the great hymns from Redemption Songs and Sankey's Hymnal which were so much loved by those who lived through those days of the 20th century.
The question may be asked of me, "Why have you made this album?"My answer has everything to do with its subject: the Lord Jesus Christ.Many representatives of the world's religions are clamouring for our attention and allegiance. But all of the founders of religion are long since dead, but the One to whom I dedicate this offering was once dead, but now is alive for evermore!He alone is worthy of our worship, our adoration and our praise.I trust that, as you put this on your CD player, you will not only listen to the music, but also take the opportunity to use the little booklet of lovely words enclosed as an aid to worship our even lovelier Saviour.To this end, may I humbly commend this album which is all about Jesus!Peter Jackson
Heather Moffat was Born and raised in Glasgow, and has been actively involved with music since a very early age. You could say it was in her genes! Raised by a Godly Christian family, she attended Harper Memorial Baptist Church where she was saved in 1966. She still attends this Church today.Ten years ago, she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis but due to prayer, a few daily tablets and the Lords graciousness, this is currently in remission.This CD - her first solo recording - is a testament to the Lords goodness as He is indeed using and protecting "This Pair of Hands."
