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!

Anne earned her Bachelors and Masters of Music degrees in flute performance from the Eastman School of Music, where she is now Assistant Professor of Flute. She is solo flute with the Lake Placid Sinfonietta, a professional chamber orchestra in the Adirondack mountains of New York State. She performs with the Eastman Virtuosi and the Rochester Chamber Orchestra. Formerly, she was principal flute of the Florida West Coast Symphony and has performed with the Rochester Philharmonic, the Buffalo Philharmonic, the Savannah Symphony, the Florida Wind Quintet, and the Spoleto Festival. Anne has taken her talents to France, Italy and Germany as a performer and recording artist. Her most significant (and challenging) accomplishment is home-schooling her four children.
