Excerpt from review by Kelly O’Neil, New York:

"Love Divine 2 is a continuation of the heavenly music found on the cd Love Divine which includes favorite and poignant hymns perfectly delivered by the London Symphony Orchestra playing the inspirational arrangements of Dutch/American pianist and composer Ian Mulder (Nashville, TN – USA). Mulder’s music is the gift that keeps on giving filling the listener with love, hope and peace. The world will be a better place if his creative juices keep flowing, perhaps with the possibility of a third edition of Love Divine."

Sheet music and backing tracks are available here.

"Mulder's music is the gift that keeps on giving filling the listener with love, hope and peace."
Love Divine 2 is a continuation of the heavenly music found on the cd Love Divine which includes favorite and poignant hymns perfectly delivered by the London Symphony Orchestra playing the inspirational arrangements of Dutch/American pianist and composer Ian Mulder (Nashville, TN – USA)

The tranquility of dawn flows through the original work "Celtic hymn" unfolding like the sun rising over a grassy moor. A solo flute plays lead in the midsection joined by a blanket of strings that could be bowed by angels. This wonderfully rich and dynamic piece is blessed by Mulder adding his sparkling piano in the final recapitulation.

As common to Mulder's compositions, the strings bolster Mulder's succulent piano lead in "The beauty of Your peace".

"Lead kindly Light" has a quiet, lush opening with oboe and piano blending into the orchestra without a ripple. This piece showcases Mulder's talent of presenting a full, exquisitely beautiful straightforward hymn as a sparkling diamond. In the last verse he adds sixteenth note dew droplets from the keyboard that only add to the voluptuous melody.

"When peace like a river" never grows old as Mulder plays the piano lead above a soft cushion of light strings. In the midsection he is completely alone leaving the listener hanging on every note with his unassumingly powerful presence. The ending is idealistically gorgeous.

A more cinematic feel surrounds another debut piece, "Spirit of love" with the full orchestra presenting this memorable yet simplistic theme. It does boast an introspective quality leading one to bask in thankfulness and gratitude.

Following the gentle piano introduction in the hymn, "This is my Father's world" the wind chimes usher in the childlike verse filled with awe and wonder. The timing is phenomenal and undoubtedly Mulder's most thrilling arrangement yet capitalizing on every instrument family.

Surprisingly the arrangement of "Love most bright" is fresh and devoid of the running eighth notes under the familiar 6/8 melody. Mulder's interpretation is tasteful and creative featuring the pianist gaily playing alongside the gallant strings.

Taken from Psalm 23, "The Lord's my Shepherd" is slower, sweet and innocent. The charming rubato and sweeping crescendo coincides with the swell of the soul's heartbeat, while the coda is like the winding down of an intricately carved music box.

Love Divine 2 also includes "The Lord's prayer". Gordan Nikolitch, the concertmaster of the London Symphony Orchestra, plays the solo violin part with ardor and lustrous vibrato. Everything about the interpretation is superb from the articulation to the crystalline high note fermata at the finale.

The light and airy keyboard dance Mulder displays in "Hours and days" are like raindrops falling through a rainbow as they melt away into the atmosphere.

The honest interpretation of "Be still for the presence of the Lord" practically has the strings flowing with milk and honey.

Mulder's music is the gift that keeps on giving filling the listener with love, hope and peace. The world will be a better place if his creative juices keep flowing, perhaps with the possibility of a third edition of Love Divine. Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Ian Mulder brings music alive on the piano. His arrangements with the London Symphony Orchestra are excellent. The mixture of familiar Hymns with the Classical pieces are beautiful. I have ordered over 10 CDs for friends and relatives as gifts ! The music would be appropriate as background to meditative group experiences or just self relaxation.

I have purchased all of the.Love Divine CDs and there is never a day that I am not listening to one of them. His music is something that shuts out the noises and chaos of the world which is not only good for the mind but good for the soul. Ian is a master of beautiful music and once you hear one you are moved tu keep buying more of his CDs. I cannot get enough of his music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best series of sacred hymns ever! (Love Divine CD collection)
April 23 | Verified Purchase
I have purchased all of Love Divine albums (5) because the music is incredibly gorgeous and soothing. Ian Mulder is an amazing pianist who often conducts his orchestra with one hand while playing his 10' Fazioli grand piano with the other hand. He also writes his own music and sometimes composes new arrangements for old hymns that are stunning. I cannot say enough good about his music. He has plenty of other CDs out that are not hymns but exceptional, popular classical-type music. I have all of them - they are that good! In addition, Seller's Customer Service is second to none: top notch service!. Thank you!

Once again I am thankful that I found Ian Mulder's music. My collection is growing of his incredible cd's. I even have my eye doctor listening to his beautiful music. I have played classical music on the piano for over 17 years. Now there is never a day that his incredible music isn't always playing. My friends love his music and I have given them all the information on how to order his cd's. Best of all he shares his God given talent to those who he has never met. Ian: thank you for sharing and making someone's day so much brighter. God bless you and all who accompanies you!

December 4 | Verified Purchase
I first decided to order Ian Mulder's CDs, because I noticed that one of them included 'In Christ Alone', an instrumental version for which I was particularly searching. The London Symphony Orchestra was added incentive. I'm very happy with them; I've never heard these hymns performed so beautifully before. The cd's arrived quickly in perfect condition. Thank you so much for making them available and so affordable.

I am an author, poet, lyricist, public speaker and ordained minister... 'as the deer pants for living streams of water, my soul longs for Ian Mulder's music.' The well-spring of emotion, joy, love, grace, passion and all the generosities of God's gifts and life's promises, coming flowing into my spirit, mind and heart each time I find a contemplative moment to allow Ian's heart-felt music to undergird my reflections, dreams and aspirations. Mulder's creative life and deeply spiritual heart will touch anyone to wholeness as his interpretations, interludes between verses, and the compelling way his piano and orchestrations lead the listener to deeper places of our desires and prayers... I always look to the sky, with a heart lifted up through his work... and journey deep within, his music as a companion for my wanderings as well as my wonderings... Thank you Ian Mulder for your gift.

I've seen Ian Mulder in person perform a concert with our symphony orchestra. I love how easily he plays, his gentleness is like his music. Easy to watch and listen. His CD's are fantastic, both his own compositions and favorite hymns. Right now I have Love Divine 1, 2, 3 and 4, also Sounds of Silence and Christmas; I hope to have all of his CD's in my collection soon!
