Carolyn Shield is back with her 2nd highly anticipated instrumental release, "Hymns Like You Haven’t Heard". Her appreciation for hymns began in her childhood, as she played the organ during the weekly worship services. Her broad musical background, which includes jazz and classical music studies, enables her to express herself in a variety of styles. The cherished hymns included on this project showcase both her musical proficiency and versatility.
This is a trans-generational collection of titles. From the churchy sounds of the organ on the "Old Time Revival Organ Medley" to the toe-tapping renditions of "Walk With Me" and "Jesus I’ll Never Forget", to the gospel jazz arrangements of "I Am On The Battlefield" and "I Surrender All", this album appeals to lovers of inspirational music and lovers of instrumental music alike. For worshipers young and old, the tender piano ballads “Savior More Than Life Me” and "He’s Sweet I Know" set the tone for adoration and peaceful meditation. While some tracks take you back to familiar sounds you love, others carry you forward to hymns played in a delightfully fresh way.
The amazing and powerful vocals included on five of the twelve tracks are an added treat. This project captures the perfect blend of light lyrics, and adds to this recording another level of inspiration.
