london symphony orchestra and reading of the book of revelation
In an unprecedented display of memory, evangelist Karen Heimbuch brings the Scriptures to life as she tours the country giving dramatic, word-for-word memorized performances of the biblical book of Revelation, accompanied by an original score performed by the world-renowned London Symphony Orchestra. Today, Revelation Media (www.Revelation-Media.com) announces the availability of The Revelation on CD, a stirring melding of the memorized spoken word and grand, sweeping music evocative of an epic film score.
Heimbuch brings the Scriptures to life as she performs The Revelation to standing ovations around the world. She delivers the biblical text in a dramatic fashion while employing theatrical body language similar to that used by professional storytellers. Colored lighting, smoke and a variety of other fantastic stage effects augment her performance. Heimbuch has performed The Revelation on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), the Joyce Meyers Womens Conference, at The Church on the Way, a 13,000-member church founded by Pastor Jack Hayford, and dozens of other churches around the nation, in part or in its entirety.
Lloyd Ogilvie, former Chaplain of the U.S. Senate, describes The Revelation as a profound spiritual experience." Jack Hayford, President of International Church of the Foursquare Gospel, and founding Pastor of The Church on The Way in Van Nuys, CA, says, This project turns this portion of Gods Word toward its greatest objective: stirring human hearts with truth, joy and hopes expectation," and hails the new product as a "stunning, heart-stirring, one-of-a-kind presentation that everyone should have in his or her CD library."
The Revelation was a three-year process of working with the finest people and musicians in the industry, and is available as a 2-CD or 2-Cassette audio set for $24.95 plus shipping and handling at www.Revelation-Media.com. Each set consists of a dramatic delivery by Karen Heimbuch of all 22 chapters of the New International Version of the book of Revelation. 84 minutes of classical music composed and conducted by Michael Harriton, a composer with over 20 years of experience in the music industry, score this powerful performance.
The original soundtrack for The Revelation was performed by the world-renowned London Symphony Orchestra, and recorded at Abby Road Studios, in London England, famous for recording albums made by some of the worlds most famous bands, including the Beatles, Pink Floyd, and Queen, as well as soundtracks for blockbuster movies like Raiders of the Lost Ark and Return of the Jedi. World-class choral singers and sound effects were brought in to enhance the music and serve as a powerful backdrop to Heimbuchs performance.
While reading the book of Revelation over ten years ago, Heimbuch was reminded of the unique promise in the third verse: 'Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near. I knew from Isaiah 55:10 -11 that all of Gods Word is anointed, but all of a sudden I realized Revelation is only book in the Bible where there's an outright guarantee of blessing just for reading it, or for having someone else read it to you. I figured I could be that someone-I could memorize Revelation and deliver the Scriptures so that others could hear it and be blessed," Heimbuch explains.
After hearing The Revelation, people come up to me and say, 'I finally understand Revelation for the first time! Its so rewarding to be a part of that process," Heimbuch says. Several times people have asked me, 'When are you going to sing Revelation again? Im not singing it, but the music and the performance are so intense that thats the way they remember it," she explains. After hearing her perform, Heimbuch says people are also often stirred to read Revelation themselves or even memorize Scripture in general.
