Hymns Of Worship
Released: Feb 2003
Instrumentalist/vocalist Fernando Ortega lays his gentle-jazz touch on classic hymns. Familiar anthems like "Be Thou My Vision" benefit from Ortega's arrangement, where strings sidle up to the melody and drums march over the crest of the hill. Elsewhere, southern harmonies ("Pass Me Not") counter Celtic throttles ("All Creatures"). These are movements of the heart.
