An ongoing discussion between our listeners and Ark Records.
Over the years many of my listeners have written to me. Often one has a question or an insightful comment to share. We’ve created this section on the ArkMusic website to allow myself and others to respond to and feature some of these correspondences. Your questions and comments can be posted to us via our e-mail address. We look forward to hearing from you. — Jeff Johnson
- I have been listening to your music since I was a kid. (The Face Of The Deep). Can you please explain the message in the song "Brendan's Prayer"?
- I recently visited the Isle of Iona. I noticed on the artwork from the original Psalmus package photographs which reminded me of the Iona Abbey. Is this where they are from?
- Why do you use often recordings of church bells in your albums? Does it have any special meaning or just because it sounds good? (From a listener in Germany)
- Will your very first two albums, The Anvil Of God?s Word and Please Forgive US Lord ever be released on CD?
- The liner notes of Celtic Christmas (Windham Hill) imply that the song "We Follow A Star" would be part of a Johnson & Dunning project entitled, The Wayfarer.
- You've created and produced a number of different kinds of albums with varying themes, collaborations and solo works. How do you determine what you're going to do next?
It's only time running like a river,
Running like a chalk-white horse across the hills.
It's only time keeping me from freedom,
Keeping me from sailing out across the sea.
Only time is running like a river flowing,
Only time is passing towards
a world of freedom -
Out across the wide blue sea.
