Review from a music teacher/choir director and others:
Some of our music is new to our listeners. Our director, Bruce Cochran, posted a link to The Power of the Cross (from the Even in the Valley CD) and received the following feedback:
We shared the song, I Am Redeemed (from the Hymns, Old and New CD) to a couple of Twitter friends. Here’s a response from one person. Her words, ‘love love love this song’ were referring to I am Redeemed.
Note her description of the chorale: (“smile-generator” and “joy-resonator”). Nice phrases! And this is from a listener…not a concert-goer. Somehow, the Chorale’s enthusiasm and joy is communicated over the ‘air-waves.’
Bruce shared Hallelujah, Resurrection Day (from the Even in the Valley CD) shortly before Easter.
He received a response the following response to this song:
After sending a ‘thank-you’ to several of our faithful listeners, Bruce received another response from our friend, Kathy:
Kathy has become one of our enthusiastic ‘promoters.’ She listens on SoundCloud, Spotify, Pandora, and anywhere else she can find the songs. Here is another of her comments:
The East Valley Chorale has had some of our songs from An Awesome Love ‘featured’ on Pandora over the past several months. Featuring a song results in increased plays, but there must be a good ‘thumbs-up’ rating or Pandora will not continue to feature the songs. On the graphs below, you can see the performance for I Am Not Alone, and I Stand Before Almighty God Alone (as I write those titles….an interesting combination of thoughts.) The ‘Featured’ number corresponds to how many times Pandora played our song, and the ‘Total’ number corresponds to Featured + voluntarily played by users.
Over the 8-week period, I Am Not Alone was featured 38,801 plays, and listeners played the song an additional 2,441 times.
The total number of plays for I Stand Before Almighty God Alone was 53,522.
Pansylee VanMeteren (@PoeticPastries) has become one of our most enthusiastic supporters. (She is the artist who painted I Surrender All as she listened to the song, I Stand Before Almighty God Alone.) Pansylee is a very talented and creative artist and writer, and a very committed Christian who communicates her faith through her art. Her web site is: PoeticPastries.com and her art is available at Zazzle.com.
She has agreed to create artwork that will be featured on our next CD, Under Bethlehem Skies, to be recorded in October. Please pray for her inspiration.
