This recording represents a return to the gospel hymn genre by this violin/piano duo. Six years ago they recorded 'Take My Hand,' a collection of hymn improvisations. In the CD 'Gospel' Rosemary Siemens and Loren Hiebert display their growing love for the music of the church in ever more creative ways. Their improvisations run through styles of jazz, gospel, blues, folk, country and lounge-style as well as traditional classical treatments. There is a freshness in the approach which comes from their daring approach to concertizing. At every concert they give, audience members are invited to request any song, even if it is one Rosemary and Loren have never played before. If at least one of them knows it, they'll play it for the audience. Many of their most memorable musical moments spring from these occasions. Seasoned performers with classical training and a flair for improvisation, Rosemary and Loren are pleased to offer this second recording of favorite hymns and gospel songs.
