Order “In Christ Alone” Album

The Sacred 2015 SWWinds Ensemble is excited to announce the release of their album, In Christ Alone. The recording features four works commissioned by the Sacred Winds Commissioning Project with each work based on well-known hymns including Praise to the LordAll Creatures of our God and KingJust A Closer Walk With Thee, and All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name

The album was recorded over two days at Tates Creek Christian Church in Lexington, KY, with three-time Grammy-award winning recording engineer, David Lau, owner of Brookwood Studios in Plymouth, MI. With over 45 minutes of music, the album explores the wind ensemble’s rich diversity through the lens of the Christian worldview.

Jody Nagel, composer of Voyage of Discovery, writes:  “Your recording of ‘Voyage’ is brilliant!!! Great intonation, tempo choices, balance, and attention to detail! It is certainly THE definitive recording. Your program notes for the entire CD are really good. I just listened to the CD in its entirety, and there’s no doubt you have added a serious gift of music to the musical world.”
