The long-awaited sequel to his best-selling Table of Plenty!
Anchored by the title track Dan Schuttes classic based on Isaiah 9:60 this beautifully recorded compilation features 12 of the most popular songs for worship written in the last 30 years.
Newly arranged for this project and enhanced with key modulations, expansive pop and classical vocal overlays, and intricate acoustic and electric guitar accompaniment, these songs sound better than ever. Highlights include Bernadette Farrells "God beyond All Names," Bob Duffords "Sing to the Mountains," and Tom Booths "Here I Am."
John Michael and his fellow musicians clearly had fun with this project. "I always enjoy pulling out the steel string," John Michael commented, "to add to my more traditional classical playing. I thoroughly enjoyed using the vintage electric guitars myself, and calling in some of the finest session players as well." Veteran orchestrator and producer Phil Perkins contributed lush orchestral arrangements.
"Through all this we hope that we have worked together to produce a rich project that will reach meaningfully into the hearts of those who heard these songs at important points in their spiritual journey," adds John Michael. "City of God contains songs with this timeless quality. It was a pleasure and an honor to set these songs to music." And it is our pleasure to hear them.
