I am so grateful for everyone who does music and especially [pianist] Garth Smith. I started listening to his music when all this was happening. During the hard times, his music always gave me happiness and hope. My favorite is Missionary Medley.

“Sacred Hymns” performed and arranged by Garth Smith is a lovely collection of beloved hymns played on the piano. There is something particularly soothing about beautifully-arranged songs played with gentle care on a piano.

The perfect music to set the tone around your home on the Sabbath or to invite the Spirit more fully into your life day-to-day, I highly recommend pianist Garth Smith’s latest offering, Sacred Hymns.

Smith certainly has an ear for music, and that is demonstrated on each of the songs on his CD. Smith takes hymns that are sung every Sunday and puts a new twist on them while still keeping the reverence and meaning of the song. His talent echoes that of The Piano Guys.

So quite often we get asked to do reviews of new and aspiring LDS artists, musicians and singers. However, few CDs have touched us as much as ”Sacred Hymns” have in our household. Beautifully arranged and masterfully crafted to allow the listener to feel at peace while following along with their hearts and mind to the sacred hymns that we have come to know and love.

...Once-in-a-while someone comes along and I feel compelled/prompted to share their message. New LDS artist/pianist Garth Smith is one of those....”Sacred Hymns” (is) a compilation...I’ve been listening to...for the past two days and (it has) soothed my soul. They are uplifting and...they have calmed me during a time of great challenge...these arranged hymns have been a welcome relief and blessing.
