Overview

Windham Hill's compilation of instrumentals and ethereal vocals culled from other releases sets a peaceful tone with its diverse musical styles and artists. Ginny Owens's eerie "Be Thou My Vision," which opens this collection, is an odd choice -- it was originally meant as a tongue-in-cheek intro to Owens' debut album, Without Condition. Owens and Jim Brickman also stand alone as the only contemporary Christian artists included here; while Christian music fans may miss hearing their own new age-style artists such as Michelle Tumes and Maire Brennan, they should welcome an introduction to the stellar talents of Cecelia and Liz Story. Elsewhere on the album, instrumentalists Samite, Peter Kater, and David Arkenstone create a soothing vibe with their new age arrangements. While it may not always live up to its lofty title, Communion with God is an easy, agreeable listen.

Editorial Reviews

This album is a fine derivative of its predecessors, yet it also encompasses some of the world's most skilled artists in the areas of contemporary Christian music, electronic, and Celtic instrumentalists. Artists featured on Communion With God include Suzanne Ciani, John Doan, Will Ackerman, and more.
