Music is a precious gift from God. It has been called the universal language because its musical words speak to the very soul or heart of the hearer regardless of the hearer’s language. We can all probably attest to this by experience. After all who can say that they have never been moved by music. Music can more easily and effectively impress the mind and feelings than words themselves. In the realization that music is a language and therefore it is used to bear a message on its own, the Christian should be made aware of how to discern the language of music, whether it is bearing a message of righteousness, that which will only elevate the soul toward God or whether it is bearing a sensual message, that which mainly emphasizes on the feelings.

It is the design of this page to provide information so that the reader can be fitted to obtain proper music discernment.

Music for your Enjoyment!

The music below represents the work of over 6 years of my life (2005-2011). They are the result of a desire I had many years ago to provide hymns and music for those who are alone, and are unable to play music of their own.

These audio recordings are digital .mp3 recordings done on my midi synthesizer (save where otherwise noted). I have uploaded them for your use and enjoyment.

The pipe organ used to play them is a virtual pipe organ I designed and put together during a one year period from 2009-2010. The other instruments are the result of hunting around for the very best sound fonts to use. I hope you enjoy them. If so, please feel free to share them with others. You may download and copy them at no cost. If you find them a blessing, and wish to donate, you may do so by clicking on the "donations" link on the menu. Thank you, and may the Lord bless you.
