'The Year's Best Music... reviewers' top picks for 2001... Many of us have waited a long time to hear a contemporary Christian recording like this...' Paul Buckley The Dallas Morning News '...As it turns out, this is a great CD because everything blends so beautifully, David's rich, expressive tenor voice; rhythms that mix musical influences ancient (the Messianic-tinged 'Psalm 108') and modern (the fluid Texas blues of 'Psalm 123') but always with a deftness of touch and sensitivity of arrangement. Throughout, there are musical moments to delight, for instance the gliding cello of Pierce Meisenbach on 'Psalm 1' or Jeannie Perkins' vocal interjections on 'Psalm 126'. The production (and guitar work) by John Piper too is exemplary. By the close I was not only convinced I had heard one of the most outstanding albums ever made without the help of a record company, but also an album with the genuine potential of leading us to the God of David and Asaph, you and I.' Tony Cummings Cross Rhythm Magazine, July 2001 '...this to me is the most significant recording to come out in many years -- secular or Christian. The lyrics obviously cannot be critiqued and the music stands up to the test of even the most finicky listener...' Joshua Martinez Jesus Music, August 2001 Biography: David Albracht began composing music to the Psalms in 1988 while a struggling student in medical school in Dallas, Texas. The words of the Psalms had always provided encouragement, strength, comfort, and a refuge from the storms and trial of life. David took a sabbatical from the practice of medicine in 2000-2001 to record the music that became the Psalmody album.
