Quiet Moments is a collection of classic hymns that have been near and dear to my heart over the years. I can recall my first day as an upcoming fifth grader at my Sunday School class at Northminster Presbyterian Church after we moved to Finneytown here in greater Cincinnati. I was nervous about going to a new class, not knowing anyone. Even then, I felt as if I had stepped back in time. It was a traditional class, all seats facing forward, old wood frame chairs, old songbooks in an old room upstairs. Something was even more unique however; our teachers were all men (fathers of my classmates.) I don’t think I realized for a long time what an impact that had on me, to be taught by three wonderful, faithful, godly men. We sang traditional songs, accompanied by a piano. “This is My Father’s World” was one that we sang frequently and that I soon learned. “The Old Rugged Cross” was another one that I learned there. Whenever I hear those songs, it is so clear in my mind; I am back in time, in that room. I can still picture those three men and hear their voices as they lead us in worship and then broke us into groups to teach us the lesson. Of course, as a young child I learned “Jesus Loves Me”. Most likely, it was the first song I learned in the church nursery at Westminster Presbyterian here in Cincinnati. Later when I was in college at Miami University in Oxford, Cat Stevens made famous “Morning Has Broken”. It became one of my favorite songs. And if you have ever attended a Billy Graham Crusade, or watched him on television, you too have probably fallen in love with “Just As I Am”.
In my mind, the old hymns are among the most beautiful. More and more churches are incorporating them into their contemporary services, partly because of their beauty, and partly to keep them alive, I suspect. For when songs are no longer heard, they die out. And it would be a travesty to allow the old hymns, so full of not only loveliness, but character, and for so many, memories, to fade away. Young people deserve to become acquainted with them, to enjoy their richness and beauty. Acquainting the younger generation with the old hymns helps bond them with the older generation, I think. And that... is priceless!!
Quiet Moments is not only a collection of beloved hymns; each song is played simply, slowly, and quietly. Did you know that scientists have discovered that blood pressure goes down when we listen to soothing, quiet music? When I come home from a stressful day at work, I especially love to listen to peaceful, soothing music. (Slow, quiet music helps me go to sleep too!)
