I find that Robin's music takes a few hearings to fully appreciate. In his music, he is a thoughtful interpreter of the Scriptures. Arise and Shine on the album East of the River offers a "present, but not yet" view of the Advent of Christ. It reflects the reality of Christ's first coming and the reality to yet come at His second coming.Like "The Wonder of the Cross" on another album, "Arise and Shine" breathes new life into Advent and Easter.Fortress, Lost and Found, I am Persuaded, At the dawning and God Arise offer comfort and hope in the face of troubling times.
I was truelly blessed by another great CD by Robin Mark. He is one of the best and gifted musicians I have ever listened to. This CD is a must have for any Christian, and anything Robin has done is wonderful to listen to.
