GOOD MUSIC



I am a big fan of this ladies' music, and I just found her latest offering. Her name is Linda McKechnie and she is fabulous. Her music is instrumental...piano,but like you've never heard before. She starts off playing a classical piece and then she weaves familiar hymns and carols throughout. I first found her work by accident, and now I anxiously wait for her newest releases.

Pictured is her newest Christmas work and it is worthy of highest praise. My first CD of hers was called Hymnworks..I think there is a Vol.1 and 2. Then she has Symphony of Praise...Vol.1 and 2. There is also her first Christmas CD called A Hymnworks Christmas, and now Christmas Collage.

If you like classical music and are at all familiar with hymns and carols, you will love this series. It is like a little surprise on each song, because you get so engrossed in the classical selection, you don't notice when she adds the hymn or carol into the piece until you find yourself humming along.

You should be able to find her music at any Christian bookstore, and she also has a web site www.lindamckechnie.com. I think you will be surprised at her mastery of the piano and her unique style. You'll not be disappointed, I'm sure.
