1. Hymnal (CD) ~ David Phelps
One of the most lauded vocalists in Christian music, GRAMMY® Award-winning tenor David Phelps lends his three-octave range to some of the most treasured hymns of the church with this all-new recording. An acclaimed member of the Gaither Vocal Band, Phelps showcases masterful vocals and lush arrangements of such cherished gems as 'Amazing Grace,' 'How Great Thou Art,' 'In The Garden,' 'Victory In Jesus' and 'It Is Well With My Soul,' taking the listener on a journey of inspiration and worship in song.
2. Jethro Tull - The String Quartets (CD) ~ Jethro Tull
A new album by Ian Anderson and the Carducci Quartet featuring the Classic songs of Jethro Tull, arranged and orchestrated by John O'Hara. Ian plays flute on most of the tracks and even sings a few lines here and there to provide his trademark sounds in the context of Classical Music traditions. Living In The Past, Aqualung, Locomotive Breath and Bungle In The Jungle are among the album track listing but appear, along with their fellow musical travelers, under more cryptic titles to differentiate them from the original recordings and arrangements. Ian says, “Perfect for lazy, long sunny afternoons, crisp winter nights, weddings and funerals.” He forgot to add, perfect also after a night of wild, abandoned sex or to celebrate the win of your favourite football team. Essentially, anytime music for sophisticated lovers of Classic Rock too afraid to wear their Tull T-shirt at the village barbecue.
