HOW GREAT THOU ART
THE HARRIS BROTHERS: Steve, Kent, Brian, Todd
Purchasers of either the CD or digital download for the Angel Band album via steveharrismusic.com will receive a bonus mp3 of How Great Thou Art. This recording is a cherished personal family tribute and so is not available for purchase.
On a cold December night in 2008, brothers Steve, Kent, Brian and Todd Harris recorded this beautiful hymn in a tiny studio in Deshler, Ohio. Their four-part harmony on this much-loved work was a Christmas gift for their mother, who had been asking for years that they sing and record something together. They thought they might do more recordings, but brother Brian died tragically and unexpectedly a little over a year later. This is the only recording of the Harris Brothers singing together.
Unbeknown to Steve Harris at the time, the 2008 recording by the four Harris brothers planted a seed of interest in and love for old-time Gospel music that ultimately led to the creation of Angel Band.
