Prayers: A Personal Selection Hothttp://www.ncreview.com/images/stories/jreviews/photos/original/6a/27/50/_prayers-1351100126.jpg
Prayers: A Personal SelectionÂ read by Michael York and composed by Michael Hoppe contains some of the most significant and most beloved prayers in Christianity. Our Lord's Prayer, the prayers of both Old Testament and New Testament saints, and some of the most famous Christian prayers are beautifully and warmly narrated by Michael York. These classic devotional prayers are sure to encourage and grow one to greater faith in Christ.
This interesting collaboration offers an eclectic mix of prayers and scriptural readings beautifully read by Michael York and set to music by Michael Hoppe. The scriptural excerpts are fairly banal and less musically compelling, but were apparently requested by the publishers as replacements for more universally themed selections. The other tracks include some very moving prayers like: Lord behold our family (Robert Louis Stevenson); Prop Me Up (John Streetman); Incline Us O God! (Jane Austen); A Prayer for the Nation (Thomas Jefferson.) Hoppe's music for these passages is lyrical and uplifting.
