Album Review: Waiting's End – solo piano vol. 1 by KeithTim Anderson
On a previous vocal album titled Refuge, Anderson created songs of scriptural and hymnal lyrics set to original compositions. On the all-instrumental Waiting’s End, he intuitively connects the theme of each song to a scripture relating to its title. For example, the beautiful opener “Autumn’s Rain” is a reference to Joel 2:23b. Beginning with twinkling piano notes that effectively convey a light rain in the breeze, this delicately flowing piece becomes more robust as keystrokes slide their way down to the middle and lower registers, before gradually climbing the scale again. Drawing its inspiration from Genesis 1:1, “Long Ago” almost feels like a prayerful lullaby, as it imparts a soul-sense of wonder with its drifting and soothing melody.
A musical reflection of Anderson’s personal faith, Waiting’s End is sure to gently uplift the spirits while bringing stillness to the mind. Peaceful, restful and softly inspirational, the album’s many moments of devotional ponder ultimately culminate in a comforting essence of grace, hope and acceptance. ~Candice Michelle
