Gary Karr, acclaimed as "the world's leading solo bassist" (Time Magazine), is, in fact, the first solo doublebassist in history to make that pursuit a full-time career. It is a career that adds new lustre to his already lustrous 1611 Amati doublebass which was given to him by the widow of Serge Koussevitzky.
 
Since his debut with Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic in 1962, Karr has performed as soloist on six continents with orchestras, including the Chicago Symphony, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic, Montreal Symphony, Simon Bolivar Orchestra (Caracas, Venezuela), Jerusalem Symphony, Oslo Philharmonic, Zurich Chamber Orchestra, and with all the major orchestras of Australia.
 
For this collection of songs of prayer, Gary Karr performs with Harmon Lewis on organ. Selections from Mozart, Schubert, Bizet, and more are represented on this release.
 
The soulful sound of the doublebass with organ is perfectly suited for this kind of meditative music. The performance is so absorbing that it demands the listener's full attention. This music was so successful with this combination of instruments that the Karr/Lewis Duo planned to release more  of this spiritual nature.
