The Moody and Sankey meetings of the 1870's inspired a great wave of evangelistic activity in many parts of Britain and the English Concertina came into extensive use in Mission Hall work and in the Salvation Army. Because of its portability it was widely used in open air work and in seaside summer missions.Due to the advent of modern electronics, the use of the Concertina as an instrument of sacred music is now a dying tradition.In this album, two surviving players of that era, Peter Donald and Gordon Haxton, bring a selection of some of the great hymns from Redemption Songs and Sankey's Hymnal which were so much loved by those who lived through those days of the 20th century.
The question may be asked of me, "Why have you made this album?"My answer has everything to do with its subject: the Lord Jesus Christ.Many representatives of the world's religions are clamouring for our attention and allegiance. But all of the founders of religion are long since dead, but the One to whom I dedicate this offering was once dead, but now is alive for evermore!He alone is worthy of our worship, our adoration and our praise.I trust that, as you put this on your CD player, you will not only listen to the music, but also take the opportunity to use the little booklet of lovely words enclosed as an aid to worship our even lovelier Saviour.To this end, may I humbly commend this album which is all about Jesus!Peter Jackson
Annita's choice of songs for this album has been influenced not only by well-known writers but also by less well-known people whom the Lord has allowed to cross her path as well as some she has penned herself. Track Listing
