As we enter this season of Lent, a traditional time of retreat and reflection, we would like to offer all of our music as a tool to can support you in your daily meditation.

Amazing Grace!

I recorded Amazing Grace in 2009 with my friend and longtime collaborator Joseph H├Ębert, for our second album, Cello & Piano Sanctuary. It is a song musicians have many opportunities to play, and we came up with a new , refreshing version.
The U.S. Library of Congress has a collection of 3,000 versions of Amazing Grace, including ours, which features an interesting "conversation" between a wondering, childlike piano descant and the gentle guidance of a caring, mature cello.

(how sweet the sound)

All over the world, there are good people struggling for freedom, for their rights, for their livelihoods and their lives. I wish I could reach out and send support to each and every one of them in their struggles, both here in the U.S. and all around the world.

I am hoping while you listen and watch and enjoy you can help me send a quiet signal of strength to those who need it, and a prayer that grace will find us all.

Keep in Touch!
