Ishmael's Songs & Hymns is a celebration of a remarkable man and his ministry. Much-loved for his children's and all-age worship songs, Ishmael's Songs & Hymns was written after his own 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 Ish 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". Ish is joined on the album by special guests Dave Bilbrough, Cathy Burton, Aaron Frith, Andy Piercy and Martin Smith, who add their familiar voices alongside Ish on songs which are congregational, heartfelt, uplifting and transcend the generations in worship. "Some of the most wonderful music comes out of the darkest pain. My friend Ishmael's new album, 'Ishmael's Songs & Hymns' is amazing - songs of hope that have been hammered out in the furnace of tears and 'God, I won't let you go' faith. I was moved to tears as I listened. Buy it and be encouraged and blessed". Jeff Lucas
