Ishmael Records 'Songs & Hymns' With Martin Smith, Dave Bilbrough, Cathy Burton & More

Mar 08 2011

Renowned British singer/songwriter Ishmael will release a new album titled 'Songs & Hymns' in April 2011, featuring special guests Martin Smith, Dave Bilbrough, Cathy Burton, Aaron Frith and Andy Piercy. Ishmael, writer of songs including 'Father God I Wonder' and numerous books, now releases his 34th album with songs which are congregational, heartfelt, uplifting and transcend the generations in worship.

Much-loved for his children's and all-age worship songs, 'Songs & Hymns' is a celebration of a remarkable man and his ministry, written after Ishmael's struggle with cancer and through personal grief, testing and ultimately hope.

"For my last 33 albums I wrote and recorded songs to encourage children to worship, but this time I needed to write songs and record an album to encourage ME to worship," writes Ishmael in the sleeve notes. "I also wanted to re-record a few of the older songs that have meant so much to me. With all my unanswered questions I realise that God is God and is always worthy of praise."
