Album Notes
We trust you will agree that classical strings can create pretty, contemporary sounds. Bonnie Rasmussen is a professional violinist and teacher, and gathered many great ideas from playing in string quartets and ensembles at weddings, church services, symphonies, and other recitals and events. In most of these songs, you will think you are hearing a small orchestra – but most of the parts are multiple tracks arranged and recorded by Bonnie.

What kind of songs?

• Contemporary songs by Michael W. Smith (Agnus Dei), Tom Fettke, Twila Paris, etc.
• Wedding favorite: “Pachelbel’s Canon”
• Most-played song in the world: “Amazing Grace”
• Hymns
• “Civil War” TV mini-series theme song: “Ashokan Farewell”

We purposely included a variety of themes, to keep the brain sharp, and to show how versatile the violin and viola can be.

Several songs use Bonnie’s electric violin. Can you find them?

Dedication note from Bonnie: “This CD is dedicated to my parents, Jay and Betty. I want to thank them for their love and encouragement in my music. I also want to thank my family, friends, and my new friends at Catsville Recording for sharing their amazing talents to make this possible. I pray that this CD will be a blessing to all of you.”

String background music for church services, parties, offices. Therapy music for healthcare, nursing home, pain management, hospice, funeral home, wake. Complements Christian muzak. Christian music CD as a gift for friends. On iTunes and Napster.

I loved the CD...absolutely beautiful. Pachalbel's Canon was played at our wedding, so it brought back great memories. We'll listen to it many times, I'm sure...

Sold 160 CD's at your first CD Release Party
Congratulations on selling 160 CD's at your CD release party last weekend. Several guests told me that they thought your versions were background songs from movies. Also, kudos to Catsville Recording for making this sound like a professional orchestra.


Beautiful & inspirational
I have listened to this CD over & over as it is soothing to the soul. Love the mix of the contemporary with the traditional. Am buying some for gifts -- this is a must share item!!

Moving, inspirational, spirit-filled, incredible, Rich production attributes
Thank you for for the wonderful production. Makes fabulous gifting. Great mixing, sensational dynamics, a master violinist...great artwork and soulful, spirited piano. Will continue to purchase. The selections take one from the troubled world. The sound could not be cleaner. Sounds great on computer, MP3, or home sound system. Rich. For the serious musician or easy listener.


Absolutely beautiful music! I am very impressed with the quality. I really think this is a top level performance.


My Christmas Presents
I learned about your website while on our vacation in Hawaii. The songs sound like movie themes! These will make great Christmas gifts for my friends.

Wonderful selections and beautiful harmonies
Love the songs you selected and most of all, the quality of your violin and viola. Your harmonies are gorgeous and tone quality so rich and deep. We're proud to know you!! Love, Lyn

Songs From A Grateful Heart
Soothing, easy listening. When Saul called for David to play when he had a headache, he would have requested this CD.

Goes with my in-line skating!
I wanted to tell you how wonderful her CD is. I ripped it onto my iMac and in turn have it on my two iPods (one is in my SUV and the other is my alarm clock) and on my Shuffle (along with 5.2 hours of Garth) that I use for accompaniment on my skating. (I am sure she never envisioned her beautiful music as accompaniment for inline skating, but it works for me. :-D ) She is amazing!.

Just beautiful!
Your playing is so beautiful and soulful, Bonnie. Thank you for sharing it with us!
