ATLANTA—A Thousand Years, the seventh recording from acclaimed pianist and composer Stanton Lanier, is slated to bow June 14. Produced by Grammy Award-winning Windham Hill Records founder Will Ackerman, the project features 12 Scripture-inspired instrumental selections encompassing original compositions, hymns and classical works.
Highlights of A Thousand Years include the title cut, drawn from Psalm 90; “For A Lifetime Blessings Flow” (Psalm 30), featuring interpretations on “The Doxology”; and Pachelbel’s “Canon In D,” interwoven with Lanier’s Psalm 19-inspired “Across The Skies,” among other selections.
“My prayer is that anyone who hears this music will be drawn closer to God, that they would be nudged nearer to embracing Jesus as Lord, Savior and Friend,” Lanier says. “I hope my music will convey a sense of God’s peace and hope, and the Scriptures that inspired these songs will speak to and bring peace to the soul.”
Through Lanier’s “Get Music Give Hope” program, part of his Music To Light The World ministry, one of his CDs is given to a cancer center or hospital with every album purchased. Since November 2009, more than 10,000 patients around the country have received Lanier's music.
A former chemist and financial planner, Lanier has released six albums since 2001, and his works have been featured on The Weather Channel; National Public Radio; “Delilah”; and Sirius XM’s “Spa” channel, among many other outlets.
