Review 1 for The Gift of Music: Great Composers & Their Influence
Date:August 31, 2007
Another great book birthed out of the ministry at L'bri in Switzerland. Enjoyable reading about many different composers, including their relationship with God! There were several musicians in the book that are normally not included in a compilation like this one. Read this book and learn more about music! Be reminded that Music is a gift from our wonderful Heavenly Father!
