'Our God is the God of SURPRISE ! The stark, painful reality of THE CROSS could spell doom, death, and destruction. But God turned that into the GLORIOUS resurrection of Christ. Just like the picture of the flower bursting with color and vibrancy, God's Love enfolds all of humanity - no matter what color, no matter whether we are the picture of orthodoxy or slightly off-beat. Great is his faithfulness! The arrangements on this CD are full of surprises as well. They are all favorites of mine that I have played for church services for years. They are blends of sacred music combined with other genres and feature the work of several creative arrangers of Christian music. Cindy Berry uses Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata as the setting for I Surrender All. Fred Bock helps us listen to Jesus Loves Me in a new way wrapped in Debussy's Clair de Lune. Dino Kartsonakis demonstrates his flair on My Tribute and on Everytime I Feel the Spirit set to Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata. John Purifoy adds a jazz flavor to Give Me Jesus. Sometimes it takes the GLORY OF SURPRISE to have us hear a well-worn message in a new way. I pray the songs on this CD will be a blessing to you --- and a GLORY to God.' -- Roberta Smith ROBERTA SMITH started in church music in 1969, at the age of 12, in the Mallow Presbyterian Church of Covington, VA. Today, she serves as pianist/organist at Wilson Memorial Union Church of Watchung, NJ, a community church of the International Council of Community Churches. She wants to thank the many people who taught and encouraged her in her music career. And she wants her presentation of these lovely and clever hymn arrangements to inspire ALL to "stop and smell the roses" and consider their own spiritual journey. May this music accompany you on your path to a fuller, richer spiritual life. Roberta Smith Music4You 1105 Park Terrace Plainfield, NJ 07062 (908) 419-8860.
