Featuring City of Prague Symphonic Orchestra
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them. Psalm 19:1–3 (NIV)
Franz Joseph Haydn based his hymn “The Heavens Are Telling” on this passage, which demonstrates how the heavens declare the glory of God without using words. This CD takes its cue from that thought, with carefully selected hymns that proclaim the awesomeness and power of God through music.
Award-winning writer composer David T. Clydesdale spearheaded this project, which was recorded in Prague with a full orchestra. As you listen to this powerful CD, you’ll feel the majesty of the music and praise our great God, who created all things.
