L-am cunoscut pe Ionică Bizău la o tură cu bicicletele. Nu știam că studiază cu hărnicie și perseverență orga clasică. Iată ce surpriză plăcută:
„Faith of our fathers, living still, In spite of dungeon, fire, and sword” The subject of this wonderful hymn is the FAITH — the “confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see”— as the Scripture defines it in Hebrews 11:1. Following the example of faith heroes, our principles should remain stable and continuous in difficult moments of the history, founding them on Jesus — the Rock of Ages. I chose a registration that starts softly and ends in plenum, emphasizing our hope of a better country — the same hope of our Fathers. “All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth. Instead, they were longing for a better country — a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.” (Hebrews 11:13, 16 NIV) * * *
Location: The Descent of the Holy Spirit Church — Oradea, Romania I am very thankful to Fr. Szabó Ervin for letting us record this.
Jesus said: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” — John 14:27 (NIV) Sometimes we need to stop from the usual daily activities to take a few moments to meditate, to find the peace that Jesus gives us. That is what this song is about. I played it choosing a soft registration of Principal 8’ and Flute 8’ with the hope to bring peace to each one that listens to it. Being connected to Him we will find peace.
