Album Notes
Shepherd's Trio is an unusual mix of English horn, French horn, and piano that leads the listener to a deep and mellow corner of meditation. The Song of Joy CD is made of creative arrangements of well known hymns and original compositions and provides an atmosphere of prayerful relaxation. Printed music for many of the Shepherd's Trio arrangements (with optional parts for oboe, clarinet, flute, bassoon, and cello) are available at Trevco Music.

unusual, mellow arrangements of familiar hymns-- some new tunes too
Nice music, and it was especially gratifying that the artists have donated their royalties to hurricane relief.
