13 Nearer My God To Thee

Music Video by HP Schmider performing "Nearer My God To Thee" inside the lovely church of my childhood in the Black-Forest-Mountains near the lake Titisee. This straight to heart goin' gospel hymn was written by Sarah Flower Adams and composed by her sister Eliza in 1841 - retelling the story of Jacob's dream in Genesis 28,11-12, where the angels of God are ascending and descending on a ladder between heaven and earth. Also the hymn is the alleged last song the band on RMS Titanic played before the ship sank.

I present pure acoustic-music - especially rhythm 'n blues and southern gospels - recorded in the humble acoustic-studio under the roof of my old house in the Black Forest Mountains in Germany.
