A Scripture Song Anthology Volumes I, II, & III

A picture of the Marti family (Jack, Laurie, Michael & Jessica) taken in 1990

This is a picture of our family about the time we re-recorded our first six projects and they became known as A Scripture Song Anthology Vol. I, II & III. Our son, Michael, was eleven years old at the time and our daughter, Jessica, was ten. You can hear Michael singing on some of the songs (most notably The Ten Commandments on Vol. I). Because of Jessica's CP, she is not able to sing, but if you listen real carefully, sometimes you can hear a little background noise that indicates she was in the room while we were recording. Her main job was to let us know if the songs were any good. If she liked a song, she would squeal with delight (not during the recordings), but if she didn't, she would shake her head (and sometimes even cry!).

The Songs

A Scripture Song Anthology Volume I (SSA V. I)

On our first two projects (contained on volume one) we recorded mostly songs which were composed by friends of ours and also songs which we'd learned through the years, but didn't know who the composers were. Credit is given to each composer, unless we don't know who they are, and then the composer is designated as "unknown."
