Father David Hemann knew he wanted to be a priest at an early age. He also has been involved in music just as long, playing drums and the guitar. In 1992 he recorded his first CD, Let Nothing Trouble You.
His newest and sixth album project is entitled Psalms of David, and features 10 original compositions - it starts with the song Holy Presence. Fr. David takes the advice of St. Francis De Sales who tells us we need to come into God's presence before we begin prayer. Then we hear eight psalms put to music by Fr. David, and the Canticle of Mary finishes the CD.
The music on this album is a step up for Fr. David, bringing in musicians like Sean Conway on the Irish whistle, Kate E. Jones on cello, and Barbara Lepke-Sims on harp.
This is a wonderful project of psalms, and is definitely worth listening to.
