This is definitely on my "must buy" list. The samples are just beautiful and
inspiring. Aaron Copland's music has always gotten to me, so I especially
love the way Peter has worked with the tune, Simple Gifts. I also love
Purpose, one of my favorite hymn tunes. I also love that he has put his
to some of these selections and the voices of others; as he and many
composers have discovered, the voice is a beautiful instrument, too.
for sharing your gift of music. -- Bonnie Jean Wilson, St. Louis, Missouri
Wow, this album of joy is amazing! Such phenomenal instrumentation
very creative arrangements to some of our favorite melodies. I adore
"Father" and the poignant expression of our plea to feel loved by God.
Anadori is just wonderful and could be the soundtrack to an epic movie!
daughter's favorite is Rocky Road; what a happy expression of joy! Thank
you for sharing your inspirations, Peter - they’re treasures! -- Debbie
Bermel, Boston, MA
Peter, I’m so pleased that you have completed your own wonderful CD.
The samples are beautiful. I hope you will consider doing something live
the upcoming New Year. It is my prayer that God greatly blesses this
endeavor as well as the rest of the work that lives within you. You remain
one of my favorite composers. -- Jenny Burton, New York, NY
I’ve listened to your Joyful work and it's a beautiful and a very personal
Peter Link expression. Thank you for gifting yourself the time to self-
such a deep, personal and uplifting musical gift and for producing it. Love
hearing your voice and of course Julia's among the others.
and gratitude to you and all that inspired you. -- Joan Spear, New Jersey
“Boy, [Ode To Joy] sure was worth waiting for!! My
husband and I just finished listening to the whole "Ode to Joy". WOW, it's
fantastic. What a wonderful musician/composer you are, Peter! I just love
your work. And, of course, Julia's and all the others involved in making it
one great CD! I just love "Anadori", especially remembering and re-
reading the Sparks blog: Make those Mistakes. Also, "Rocky Road" and
"This I know is True" just made me dance! "How Great Thou Art" and "Ode
to Joy Finale" are majestic! I just love the whole thing. There is something
in me that just loves the idea of mixing traditional CS hymnal favorites with
different cultures of music and different styles of music... was that a little bit
of heavy metal in the first "movement" of Ode to Joy? Much appreciation
all you all do!” –Jan Sweet, Sturbridge, MA
