OCEANSIDE, California - RLegacy Entertainment and G&D Productions proudly presents the latest album from pianist Garth Smith “How Beautiful Thy Temples, Sacred Hymns, Vol. II”.
In his second full-length album, Garth Smith brings his masterful, reverent signature style to bear on hymns and sacred songs that focus on the beauty and eternal significance of temples. From “An Angel From On High,” an arrangement inspired by the statue of the Angel Moroni that sits atop many temples, to the children’s songbook classic “I Love To See the Temple”, Garth revisits sacred favorites and lends them new breath through arrangements that inspire us to think on the eternal.
Early reviews are outstanding, and reflect recognition of Garth Smith’s ability to bring a peaceful and inspiring tone to the listener:
Crawford Gates, famous LDS composer, has called “How Beautiful Thy Temples” a “fabulous recording.” Smith’s arrangement of Gates’ beloved Easter hymn “Here is Not Here” (The Choirbook) is included as track 8 on the album.
“This man has a gift. This is the type of music I can relax and enjoy with my family,” writes popular LDS blogger Cassandra (Cassandra M’s Place Blog)
“I am a new listener to Smith and I am now a new fan! This (How Beautiful Thy Temples) CD will definitely be my new Sunday listening music!...5 stars!” says Crystal (Books Are Sanity Blog)
“These ‘How Beautiful’ arrangements bring the listener an incredible sense of peace and clarity. Your soul will be uplifted and your spirit brightened,” writes John and Kara Huntington (LDS SMILE Blog).
“How Beautiful Thy Temples, Sacred Hymns, Vol. II” can be purchased at fine LDS outlets such as Deseret Book, BYU Store, YourLDSMusicStore.com, and others.
