Maureen McGovern, last on Broadway in a Drama Desk Award-nominated performance in Little Women, has released her latest solo recording, which is titled You Raise Me Up—A Spiritual Journey.
“My desire has been to record a spiritual CD, in these oh-so-trying times, that would feel like a warm blanket passed on from heart to heart,” says McGovern. “Comfort. Inspiration. Peace. Whatever your spiritual path, we are all a part of something much greater than ourselves and connected to each other soul to soul. Recording these songs was indeed a labor of love.”
The complete track listing follows:
“You Raise Me Up”
“Turn, Turn, Turn”
“For the Love of It All”
“Prayer of St. Francis (Peace Prayer)”
“Return to Sender”
“Rocked in the Arms”
“On Eagle's Wings”
“A Quiet Place”
“Father Won't You Carry Me”
“The Water Is Wide”
“I Will Arise”
“God Be with You”
The album was co-produced and arranged by Jeff Harris, who is also featured on piano and keyboards.
McGovern's Broadway credits also include The Pirates of Penzance, 3 Penny Opera and Nine.
