ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Martyrs Project, in the presentation of this album, aims to strengthen 21st century Christian music by reconnecting current needs and concerns with ancient roots. It uses historic forms of prayer in a contemporary and inclusive expression to inspire and to teach, but most of all, to re-discover in the Martyrs’ Prayers, the mystery of God.

Michael Glen Bell and Duane W.H. Arnold have undertaken the composition and arrangement of the music. Arnold has acted as producer (and occasional vocalist) while Bell is the primary artist on the CD.

A group of world-class musicians have signed on to record this project with Bell and Arnold. This group includes Phil Keaggy (CCM icon and always listed in the top 50 guitarists in the world by Guitar Player magazine), Glenn Kaiser (Rez Band), Randy Stonehill, Kemper Crabb (The Vigil), Ronnie Ciago (percussionist, now with Circa - former members of Yes), John Sferra (drummer with Glass Harp), Jennifer Knapp (Grammy nominated singer/songwriter), The McCrary Sisters, Margaret Becker (Grammy nominated singer/songwriter), Wayne Berry (Home at Last), and Mike Pachelli.

The prayers gathered on this CD have been drawn from a “great cloud of witnesses” from across the centuries and around the globe and include Oscar Romero, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a child from Ravensbruck, Clement of Rome, Sadoth of Selucia, Carpus of Gurdos, John Ri, Thomas Becket, Ignatius of Antioch and Quirinus of Siscia. The album is now available for purchase as deluxe edition CD and digital download.

Martrys Prayers

Extremely moving
This is a powerful collection of prayers set to world class contemporary music. Fantastic musicianship led by Michael Glenn Bell. His voice is powerful, haunting, and soothing at the same time. The arrangements are fantastic. I recommend this album to all people of any faith. I am buying several for Christmas presents.
