Record label Adora expands the instrumental hymn-series Viva!
– We are grateful for all the great reviews of “Divina” – the first album in the Viva-series, and happy to be releasing another album with instrumental hymns that creates a nice atmosphere. says Jonatan Samuelsson, founder and owner of Adora.
Viva is an album-series with focus on the songs rather than on a certain artist. This means that the participating musicians on the albums will vary.
On this album, the keyboardist Danne Tibell (Jerusalem, XT, Larm) plays piano, Hammond-organ, church organ and synthesizers. Producer is long time band-brother Anders Mossberg (Jerusalem, Larm, freelance musician), from the album ”Divina” who also join Danne as musician along with the guitarists Björn Stigsson (XT, Leviticus), Johnny Lennartsson (Johnny Lennartsson Group) and Stephen Carlson (Brotthogg, Peter Carlsohn’s The Rise, Christian Liljegren).
Well-known hymns such as I Surrender All, Blessed Assurance and Be Thou My Vision are mixed with songs such as Danne’s Jerusalem-song Days Passing By and Anders Widmark’s Genom varje andetag (Through Every Breath).
This is first class instrumental music. An album that works just as well in the background as being actively listened to.
Together with prominent instrumental soloists, Danne puts his own personal stamp on the production and the performances in this album.
