I chose this rating because I am really enjoying immensely listening to this CD recording. I had not previously heard of this artist and his music, but the description of it appeared to be appealing, providing a style of music I enjoy. This proved to be correct. On receiving and listening to this CD, I immediately liked it. It is "easy-listening" music; the style, the expertise of the pianist backed by a very well known and much-loved orchestra and the choice of items is providing me with a great deal of enjoyment and pleasure. Its music provides excellent and soothing background music. It compares very favourably to many other CD's I have of similar music both in terms of content and quality. Without doubt, it has met my expectations full and I am so pleased that I purchased it.. I would recommend this CD to friends and family without any hesitation.
This is a very lovely CD of interesting and different arrangements that Mr. Mulder composes and plays. I like that he plays the sacred music in such a way it sounds new. I recommend it for listening while meditating, reading scripture, or just relaxing, even background for a quiet dinner.
Outstanding production and sound, with superb musicianship. Sweeping, lush musical landscapes creating the setting for experiencing peace and joy. Came especially wrapped in a decorative box placing the wrapped CDs on the soft cotton pad inside. Highly recommend! A beautiful experience I listen to every day.
I was able to give this as a Valentine present and the recipient could not have been more pleased. The Christian music is very well presented and packaged. The recipient prefers instrumental music and that is why I sought out this product when I learned of it. It could not have been more perfectly received and enjoyed. The music is both symphonic in nature to an extent and classical Christian in content with wonderful background accompaniment to the powerful piano interpretations by Mulder. I expect to buy others in the series in the future.
I first decided to order Ian Mulder's cd's, because I noticed that one of them included 'In Christ Alone', an instrumental version for which I was particularly searching. The London Symphony Orchestra was added incentive. I'm very happy with them; I've never heard these hymns performed so beautifully before. The cd's arrived quickly in perfect condition. Thank you so much for making them available and so affordable.
I have NEVER been more BLESSED by another music CD other than the LOVE DIVINE CD, by Jan Mulder. I have recently shared it with a dear widow friend who is a full time caregiver to her 93 year old Mother, she is fortunate enough to have a central music system in her home, and as that music plays throughout her home, it soothes, comforts and brings joy into every room. I have also shared with a friend whose son was killed by a drunk driver. Jan Mulder's LOVE DIVINE CD has been such a gift and blessing to her. Jan Mulder's music has the ability to take the spirits of the needy and hurting to a place where only God lives. God bless Jan Mulder and those who help to get his music out to others.
I have purchased all of Love Divine albums (5) because the music is incredibly gorgeous and soothing. Jan Mulder is an amazing pianist who often conducts his orchestra with one hand while playing his 10'2" Fazioli grand piano with the other hand. He also writes his own music and sometimes composes new arrangements for old hymns that are stunning. I cannot say enough good about his music. He has plenty of other cd's out that are not hymns but exceptional, classical-type music. I have all of them - they are that good! In addition, Seller's Customer Service is second to none: a bunch of cd's were missing from 2 separate shipments and we're replaced within a few days. Top notch service!. Thank you, Sandra!
