Seasoned music industry professional Jay Richards and and pianist Karla Axtell come together in print for their latest collaboration, “Hymns of Faith – Sacred Hymns for Solo Piano.” This new songbook is a compilation of 16 favorites from the Richards/Axtell recordings, “Hymns of Faith” Volumes 1 and 2. Delicate and precise, climactic and soaring, these classical arrangements for the experienced pianist reflect the refinement, strength and sacredness of temple walls, elevating the listener above worldly cares. Richards/Axtell’s arrangement of “Joseph Smith’s First Prayer” is a vision in itself with cinematic movements that evoke scenes of a culminating moment in Church history. The flowing tenderness and submission of “In Humility” opens into a stirring musical expression of the infinite nature of the Savior’s atonement. The book concludes with a deeply poignant retelling of ”If You Could Hie to Kolob”. Interwoven lines of flute and cello transport the listener to the outer reaches of eternity to view the majesty and grandeur of God.
