Since I downloaded this album today, I've listened to it over and over. By nature, my first listen of newly purchased music is the most gut-felt critical: if it sets well with my heart upon first listen, I know that it will become a favorite and set the tone for my playlist for the next few weeks or even months. This is a *fantastic* album. It will be the focal point of my quieting/study music for some time to come.
But... there are few songs which have EVER grabbed me as "In God's Hands" did. I found myself replaying and resonating with the song as it took me on a gentle, tear welling journey. There is a powerful, sober, gentle dialogue that echoes the plaintive state of my soul as I walk with Him, speaking with Him: explaining the un-defendable, listening to His patiently repeated, merciful, heart-melting answers; the accompanying echoes in the song as I say, "I am but dust Lord, yet I am grateful... I believe I understand..."
And perhaps it is simply that I am caught up in something of my own internal struggle at the moment, but this song surely, clearly, cleanly, simply, utters a prayer that my own lips cannot fathom.
The other music on this album is also beautiful but I am most grateful, at this moment, for this offering of musical prayer.
This man has done wonderful things with his amazing talent to create not only beautiful music, but faith affirming worship within these songs. The lack of lyrics leave room for an imagination of finding what each song means to you and creating your own lyrics to it in your head. Lyrics that dictate how the music makes you feel and how it can change your life. Every single one of David Nevue's albums, Overcome, Whisperings, Adoration, A Delicate Joy, Revelations, Sweet Dreams & Starlight, Awakenings, O Come Emmanuel and While The Trees Sleep have done nothing short of change my life. The lull me to sleep, they keep me focused to study, they calm my fears, sooth my frustration and elate my praise and happiness. To listen to David Nevue play piano, is to listen to the Soundtrack of Heaven, if there ever were one. He is and will live on to be, my favorite and most loved musician and pianist.
David Nevue is an amazing pianist. His album is exquisite! It is a favorite - along with Einaudi's Una Mattina! I would definitely recommend it to you if you want to create a relaxing atmosphere in your home. This vendor sent my order in a timely fashion and the product arrived in excellent condition. No problems! Thank you!
Another hit by David Nevue. This CD contains some new pieces and some true classics and all are crafted perfectly to make this a pure joy to listen to. I have a repeat function on my Bose which allows to to listen to hours of uninterrupted music by David Nevue. No doubt that you'll want to listen too.
