New music: Ted Pearce - Ancient Gates

 Shalom dear Chavah listeners, Fresh new Messianic music on the station, contributed by our dear friend and longtime Messianic artist, Ted Pearce. ♥ Ted Pearce - Ancient Gates This is Ted's 11th (!) record/LP. His songs have become staples of the modern Messianic movement, played everywhere in our congregations and beloved by many. His music is some of the highest rated music on Chavah, so I know you fine folks love his works for the Lord. Ted gives some background on this new 7 song album: I can remember the joy I felt the first time I heard these songs. People were dancing and singing and enjoying each other. These seem like standards that every Jewish congregation would know, but I had never heard them before at age 29.  In 2021, I began studying to be an audio engineer and chose these songs for my “work project” to learn that skill. Then, during the “Long Tour 2022” across the western USA, I recorded a few friends along the way and added them to these recordings. By Octobe
