A picture of Jack & Laurie Marti taken in 1993

This picture of Laurie and me was taken in 1993, about the time we finished recording The Ten Virgins. We tried something different on this tape that we had never done before. Since Michael's voice was changing and he was self-conscious about singing, we had him play the flute on a couple of the songs. We also had help from Wesley Geisinger and his trumpet on Psalm 150. Tom Swiatek helped us out with his flute on Psalm 27:4, 7 & 11. I played all the other instruments on Psalm 150. I had the hardest time getting the symbol I barrowed to sound just right. I composed all but five of the songs on this project during one of the most discouraging times of my life. But the Lord is good, and these songs helped me get through that time. Praise His holy name.
