This recording appeals to all ages, although it was designed for ages 9 and up (the Scripture passages are longer). This is perhaps our most 'upbeat' collection so far. The recording is framed by two beloved Psalms set to exhilarating music like the Spanish Flamenco guitar rhythms on Psalm 19. 'The Name of the Lord' is an unusual setting for voices and French horn choir. With intense orchestral tom-toms and brass, 'Slow To Anger' may remind you of a movie soundtrack like the 'The Chronicles of Narnia". I wanted the music to draw a picture of anger in sound, to illustrate that this highly-charged emotion must always be under control. Our guest baritone, Derrick Smith, performs a soulful 'Bring The Tithe'. My favorite is 'Run The Race': Hebrews 12 is set to a rich orchestral arrangement with lots of color and emotion to reflect the nuances of this poignant text on discipline. If you're looking for just one recording in the Sing The Word® series, The Heavens Declare is it! Instrumental-only tracks for memory practice and performance are included. Bible versions used: NAS, KJV, NIV. 'The Heavens Declare from the very musical Harrow Family has very quickly become one of my favorite CD's from any genre. And I have to say that being a member of the NY Philharmonic, I am very particular about what I listen to when I am not performing myself. The musical and production quality alone should place this CD at the top of Billboard's charts and were it not for the fact that it is devised for a very different purpose and audience, I believe it would be. And though I could recommend this CD for purely musical reasons alone, the most compelling quality is how fully God's anointing permeates it. I have found it to be a real help in not only retaining the scripture verses used in the songs, but also as a faith builder and strengthener in times of trial. I also love the fact that I can sing the songs with my three year old and can actually look forward to extended car travels with the CD in the car! I greatly look forward to future musical and spiritual endeavors from the Harrow Family. I really can't stress enough how much we all have enjoyed this CD and the others that you have made.' -----Roger Nye - bassoon, New York Philharmonic Orchestra 'I wanted to write and thank you for the blessing that your CDs have been to me and my family... I loved hearing my children singing scripture as we drove in the car and did chores at home. However, I also noticed that I really treasured being able to memorize scripture and see the Holy Spirit bring it to my mind at the perfect time...As a homeschooling mom with 5 children ages 2,4,7,8 and 12, I have very little quiet time or time alone. Many days it has broken my heart how little time I spend in bible study. It seems my brain is always being talked to, distracted, settling squabbles. It hurt my heart that I wasn't able to spend the time or clear mind meditating on scripture like I used to. And yet, I knew God gave me my children and understood this season of my life with little ones always nearby. What a jewel it has been to find your CD's that enable me to hear pure scripture during my busy, crowded days. I am thankful to be able to memorize scripture with my children and allow them to see me making this a discipline that I value. God has used The Heaven's Declare CD to lift my spirit this week as I declared that 'His mercies are new every morning.' Thank you so much for this gift in my life, my home, and my spirit. May God bless your family and your work.' -----Jenny S. - Lexington, SC.
