I have two CD's that do a marvelous job of presenting ideas and longings for heaven without getting too hokey. City of Gold is about 11 years old and has quotes from Pilgrims Progress along with wonderful songs put together by Phil Baggely. Some wonderful flute and saxaphone playing with a jazzy feel and a progression that is very satisfying.
Andrew Petersons The Far Country is a hopeful uplifting collection with an acoustic flavor and a very hopeful and positive presentation of the gospel in song. "There are mountains on the Ocean floor" reflects an emphasis on reconciliation that was refreshing.
