As I was working on this album, I affectionately called it my “Corona-hymns” album, not only for the obvious reason that the songs were recorded and released during the COVID-19 quarantine, but because of the impetus behind the project and the purpose I wanted it to serve: to provide comfort and assurance during these unsure times.

I’ve always loved hymns and felt that perhaps the most comforting thing about them, besides their lyrics and tunes, is the fact that many of them were written a long time ago in the “times like these” that their respective generations faced.

There’s nothing new about what we’re experiencing and there’s plenty of old to lean back on.

For example, “Be Thou My Vision,” the 6th track on the album, is a translation of a text that goes back, according to some sources, as far as the 6th century! It’s been comforting us for 1,500 years!

The 2nd track on the album, “This Is My Father’s World,” a too oft-neglected hymn and known almost exclusively for its first verse, ends with these lyrics:

This is my Father’s world:
Why should my heart be sad?
The Lord is King; let the heavens ring!
God reigns; let the earth be glad!

I hope these hymns, delivered in a simple, piano-only, improvisational style, much like a prelude before a service or in a living room after dinner, meet you where you are and fill you up with same degree of comfort and assurance they have for millions of others over many centuries.
