You will enjoy going "into the organ loft" to listen to the uplifting sounds of Reverend Bert Jones' masterful playing. You'll hear hymns, Gospel songs, sacred classics, or choruses, as well as interesting and informative comments about how many of the songs were written. Through the Hymnbook, a subsidiary of the ministry, A Visit with the Joneses, has been airing since the mid-1950's. Usually the organ music is played on a Hammond 3000; you will hear chimes and the singing of a live canary, Singspiration. Occasionally Bert shares the music of a great pipe organ he would find in his evangelistic travels. It has been a much loved program including bits of hymnology.
About Reverend Bert Jones
Reverend Bert Jones was an incredibly talented man. He was an accomplished organist and pianist, as well as an artist in water color and oil, but his primary calling was as an ordained minister and evangelist. He began playing the piano at age six, and by age 13, was playing a three-manual pipe organ. He had only two years of formal music lessons, and usually played without music. Bert ministered in thousands of churches over a 50 year period, and was well known for his radio ministry, "A Visit with the Joneses." Eight long-play albums were released by Singspiration, and Bert wrote many of his own compositions.
Bert went to be with the Lord in April 1995, and he left a legacy of beautiful music.
