Overview

What inspired them to write the ageless masterpieces—concertos, sonatas, operas, chamber pieces, and choral works that are as fresh today as when they were first performed? What stirred the hearts of hymnists like John Newton and Fanny Crosby to pen "Amazing Grace," "Blessed Assurance," and other enduring hymns of the Christian faith? And what can we learn from these people today? In Spiritual Moments with the Great Composers, Patrick Kavanaugh shares intimate glimpses into the lives and minds of the master classicists and hymnists: their poverty, successes, failures, and rejection . . . their hard choices, heartaches, and wise decisions . . . their strong faith in Christ . . . and the other hallmarks of greatness that live behind the beauty of their works. Skillfully weaving the experiences and thoughts of the masters with scriptural passages, devotional reflections, and prayers, Spiritual Moments with the Great Composers offers seventy spiritual vignettes on ten major themes, such as joy, encouragement, and the pursuit of excellence. Complete with beautiful illustrations set in elegant counterpoint to the text, this is a devotional to treasure — one to reach for often for depth, insight, and a deeper appreciation of music, heaven's language. Like the hymns, the readings in this book may herald tidings of comfort and joy. Rephrase an old, old story. Remind us that Jesus loves us and bids us to shine. Testify to God's amazing grace. Prompt us to fall on our knees, to lift up every voice and sing. Some of them tie a song's origin to its message. Many weave in moments of epiphany: How and when did a particular hymn touch someone's spirit? All of them lead you toconsider God's word to you as you face daily victories, setbacks, challenges, choices. There's something extraordinary about these devotional writings by Evelyn Bence. Put yourself in the hands of a masterful storyteller who knows how to draw you in and draw you near.

Author Biography: Patrick Kavanaugh, executive director of the Christian Performing Artists' Fellowship, holds a doctorate in music composition. A conductor and performer, he is the author of Spiritual Moments with the Great Composers, Spiritual Lives of the Great Composers, and Raising Musical Kids.
