ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Annie Karto's moving new CD her best work yet
Annie Karto's new CD Refuge is a unique Christian musical masterpiece, with 34 different instruments used throughout the recording. Annie Karto’s voice is so clear and pure and many have commented, “angelic.” Although many instruments were used, it stands alone in its simplicity, and message.
The title track “Refuge” is a song with several purposes. First, from a Christian standpoint, that we all share in the sorrows and joys of all God’s people. Second, from the tenderness of a mother’s heart, an offering of comfort and love to those closest to her. The oldest Native American flute, an instrument used for healing, was recorded on this song by John Two Hawks from Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
“Song for Immaculee” is a recording that has a unique soundtrack featuring world renowned violinist, Abe Appleman, and other beautiful stringed instruments. It is a powerful song of the true story of Immaculee Illibagiza, the Rwandan refugee. Immaculee’s book, “Left to Tell” was on the New York Times bestseller lists for many weeks. The song recalls her experience of survival through the genocide of the Rwandan war when her country unraveled in the spring of 1994. Immaculee lost all of her family members but one during this horrible killing spree. All Christians should hear this story of forgiveness and this moving song that speaks of God’s mercy as the only way to true freedom and healing.
“Refuge” includes seven original songs, composed by Annie, along with the beloved classic, “Hail Mary: Gentle Woman” and the timeless, “Let It Be”. Let “Refuge” draw you closer to the Heart of Jesus.

Hauntingly Beautiful
This is Annie's best CD ever. I can listen to Annie all the time. I am not a CD listener, but i love to listen to her voice. It is angelic and Reguge is so infused with the Holy Spirit it gives me goose bumps when I listen to it.
Annie's song writing and voice transport me to a heavenly place.

Refuge - A Spiritual Gem
Refuge is a brilliant, multi-faceted heavenly gem. This is Annie Karto's most intimate, sophisticated and spiritually edifying accomplishment to date. Words and music flow gently, as a river of mercy, through the listeners heart. Each arrangement is deeply imbued by the Holy Spirit with such tender and genuine love that settles on the soul like a fragrant, healing balm. Within this work is a pure and beautiful echo of the call of Jesus, Divine Mercy, for all mankind to relinquish their woundedness and pain and make a refuge of His most Sacred and Eucharistic Heart.

Moving and Reflective
I enjoy this CD very much. I love all the wonderful rhythms opposed by the serene sounds of other pieces. Everytime I listen to a song I am able to reflect on another facet of God's love and mercy. My 3 year old daughter and I listen to Refuge on our way to daycare, adoration, Mass or anytime we are in the car. It is a wonderful way to calm our souls and prepare ourselves for time with our Lord. Annie has a great talent given to her by our Lord. Thank you Jesus for the gift of Annie and her music.
