I am not a musician, so please forgive me for not using more “musical” terms here.
I’m looking for a copy of The Touch of the Master’s Hand by Wayne Watson. It’s based on a poem by the same name; it’s about how a beat-up old violin serves as a metaphor for the Christian life (you had to be there).
I’ve heard two versions of this song in my life. One is “light” and “airy” and has the perfect minimalist instrumentation for an uplifiting poem.
The other is whiny, dreary and overwrought, like so much Christian music from those days (and these days, for that matter).
I’m looking for the light and airy one. Anyone know which album it’s on?
