Responding to the barrage of noise and life around him, Ortega dives into scripture and liturgy to grieve the loss of loved ones and to find a fresh perspective on worship. He then sets these Bible texts and inspirations to music and writes new sacred songs with a very classical feel, using mostly voice and piano, as on the stirring Grace and Peace and All Flesh Is Like the Grass. The hymns (some ever so slightly rearranged) are part of Ortegas journey, and he uses them methodically without sounding contrived. The new and the old become seamless and create what feels like a shadow of protection.
Produced and mixed by Ortega and Grammy®-winning engineer Gary Paczosa (Alan Jackson, Dixie Chicks), the project is further enhanced with numerous special musical guests including Alison Krauss and Susan Ashton and the harmonies of Vince Gill and Dan Tyminski (Union Station). Grammy® winners Turtle Island String Quartet give life to arrangements by longtime collaborator John Schreiner on numerous tracks.
Devotion to God is worship of God, and, in a subdued, meditative manner, Ortega creates the right atmosphere in which the listener can reflect on God and commune with God.

I've got several of Fernando Ortega's CDs and this one does not disappoint. It is a very soothing blend of his own songs and hymns reworked in the Fernando way to make it fresh. His music is very gentle. I give his CD's to friends that have a lot going on in their lives... like grief or going through an illness. I know from experience his music is therapeutic and uplifting. Helps keep the mind focused on God and our Savior Jesus and his love and care.
