CD of the Week
Philippa H anna has such a gift for penning songs that speak to the deep places of our hearts. Each track of this tremendous new album is engraved in my mind already. There's a real variety of tone, tempo and style to suit every mood. The lyrics challenge while the music lifts and refreshes. Buy a CD for keeps! Totally worth it.
