       I never grow
tired of listening to good old-time gospel music played using the
ancient tones.  That’s what Peter Trenholm does with his remarkably
honest and beautiful voice.  This gentle man who makes his home in Nova
Scotia, is a wonderful spokesman for our Lord Jesus Christ.  He lends
not only the authenticity of a genuine desire to speak for the Lord, he
is a genuine sharing person.  Therefore everything you hear him sing is a
very real experience.  He knows that songs dedicated to Jesus in the
past are just as important as songs being written today.  That’s what
makes this particular recording so authentic.  Peter uses old-time
instruments as well, the best on the session an incredibly good old-time
fiddler, backed equally well by an incredibly good mandolin picker. 
Well, wouldn’t you know it, both instruments were played by the very
able Ray Legere.  Frank Doody plays banjo and Dobro (especially well
done on “If I Could Hear My Mother Pray Again”); Terry Poirier on
acoustic bass; and Peter himself on lead vocals along with lead and
rhythm guitar.  What a nice blend of ancient tones instruments, played
with the same passion and gift that so many have playing this kind of
music.
     Very hard to pick any favorites on this extremely well
done recording.  I personally know that Peter is a great fan of Hank
Williams, Sr., and this shines through very well on both “Heaven Holds
All My Treasures” and “I Saw The Light.”  Peter also contributed two of
his own originals “Passing Through” and “The Little Country Church” both
of which I enjoyed very much.  Very good use of the fiddle and mandolin
on both.
      It was very easy for me to listen to every song on
this nicely produced CD.  Old time Gospel music never sounded better. 
Highly recommended for those who still aren’t sure.
