David Phillips has been immersed in the world of sacred music for over thirty five years. While teaching music in Catholic grade schools and working at the parish level, David discovered a need for recorded music of both contemporary and traditional church music. Remembering his years in Catholic schools, time spent singing in a boys choir at his parish, and his love for the traditional hymns of the church, David formed Gentle Spirit Music Productions in 1988 and began to release albums of instrumental arrangements of traditional and contemporary Catholic music, plus albums of his own compositions. Three of his recent albums, "Be Not Afraid", "Angels Around Us" and "Music from the Psalms" have won awards for best instrumental album of the year from the United Catholic Musician and Video Association (www.ucmva.com). He continues to add albums to the Gentle Spirit catalogue while also working with a number of other artists including Robert Kochis, Seraphim, and His Majesty's Musicians.
