About the Sing The Word Series:
I (Joy) am not a big fan of children's music. The simple ditties seem trivial at best, and all too frequently become unbiblical in an effort at simplicity. The music ranges from tedious to obnoxious, and even if the humor was funny once, it quickly becomes exasperating as it is repeated over and over during the course of the day. Thankfully, this series is very different. Sung by and for children, the words you'll hear are taken directly from the scriptures and the music itself encompasses a wide range of musical styles and is neither tedious nor grating.

After listening to the first CD once we were surprised to find ourselves singing the verses around the house, complete with the correct references. For a family with chronic poor memory, this was notable! Perhaps this was because the words are repeated several times in each song, or perhaps because the children's voices are so pleasing to listen to and the tunes are catchy and easy to sing. If your children are still at that young adorable stage, you can use the included instrumental-only tracks for a family recital.

Produced by a musically enterprising couple and their clutch of young children, the Harrows found that the musical sophistication and depth grew with their children. They suggest that Sing The Word A to Z is geared for 1-7 year olds, A New Commandment for ages 6+, God Our Provider for ages 7+, Great In Counsel for ages 8+, The Heavens Declare for ages 9+, All Nations Shall Worship for ages 10+, and Credo: I Believe for ages 11+. While this is helpful to know, the scriptural content and wide musical variety (a Baroque string orchestra, a rhythmically intense Salsa band, an Irish jig, an Israeli Hora...) lend appeal to a much wider age range. The Bible versions vary too, including NIV, KJV, NKJV, RSV, and NAS. I find that even the versions I normally wouldn't prefer are a refreshing change from most of today's supposedly Christian music.

Be sure to listen to the downloadable clips taken from each CD. It is often hard to get an accurate feel for music from a clip, but the Harrows have done an excellent job with these samples. If you like the clips, I'm confident you'll really enjoy the CDs!

    Great words, instrumental arrangements August 15, 2013
    Reviewer: blessed4xover  
    We recently added this disc to our collection of Harrow family CDs. They are all excellent, but as a musician, I think this may be my new favorite. As the children get older, the passages get longer and the vocal and instrumental arrangements get more complex. It is just good music--not only good for Scripture memory, but for music appreciation, with complex harmonies, beautifully arranged, professionally performed. I love the way the music reflects the text. An example: Prov. 16:32 "He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit, than he who captures a city." The music sounds like there is about to be an epic battle scene in a movie. It has sparked good conversation with our 5 year old about the genuine battle between the flesh and the spirit that we must constantly fight. This disc is highly recommended.

    Excellent CD! January 5, 2011
    Reviewer: Cari Dierking from Simpsonville, SC United States  
    I love The Heavens Declare CD.  It is another great way to fill our homes, minds and hearts with God's Word.  It easily penetrates our hearts and helps with scripture memorization.  We enjoy listening to the CD as background music throughout our day.  The Heavens Declare CD is an easy way to hide God's Word in our hearts.  Excellent product!
