CD With Songs of Praise
Psalm Singing on Genevan Tunes in the Canadian Reformed Church at Langley BC. Accompaniment on the 2008 Casavant organ by Frank Ezinga and Ken Linde plays the Trumpet. Some Psalms are sung by the Fraser Valley Young Adults Choir in 4-part harmony.
“The Canadian Reformed Church in Langley, British Columbia, has made a recording featuring the new Casavant organ in a program of Genevan Psalms that are rendered magnificently by a large choir and accompanied with bravura by Organist Frank Ezinga.”
“The musical accompaniment tastefully carries the voices and brings out the varying moods of the words being sung. The tempo of the singing is brisk and steady. This CD is sure to increase your appreciation for the psalms as we sing them in church every Sunday.”
(Rev. John Smith in Una Sancta)
“The result is sometimes serene, sometimes majestic, always worshipful – a CD that seeks to promote the glory of God through the corporate singing of the Word of God.”
(Rev. Joel Overduin in The Messenger)
