Healing Song is a new collection of liturgical music in the signature Celtic style of Liam Lawton. His rich, tenor voice and the splendid orchestrations of Mark Cahill combine to fashion a recording that is an invocation of hope.
The Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and the beatific voices of the St. Colmans Cathedral Chamber Choir directed by Dominic Finn add a dimension to this recording that paints an angelic picture of what heaven must be.
From the first pleading note of the violin on 'Sing Alleluia' to the final diminuendo of 'Sing Forever,' the music of Healing Song offers a soothing balm to nurse the wounded hearts of humankind.
