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

God be with thee on every hill,
Jesus be with thee in every pass,
Spirit be with thee on every stream,
  headland, ridge and field.
Each sea and land, each moor and meadow,
In wave trough, on billow crest,
  Each step of the journey thou goest.

-- from Cadoc's Blessing on Byzantium
