Lost In Worship II Album


Some people liked Lost in Worship so much that they desired another album like it - hence Lost in Worship II


Lost in Worship II  is similar to the first album in that it also has 13 original songs. But it is different in that 6 of the 13 songs are improvisational extended worship. So for example, you will most likely enjoy the worship of the first song (i.e. Track 1) and might desire for it to continue with some additional lingering worship. Hence Track 2, which is improvisational worship based on Track 1! The same is true for 5 other tracks that have 5 corresponding improvisational worship tracks. The only track that doesn’t have a corresponding improvisational track is Track 5 called, “The prayer of my heart” – which is a sung prayer and therefore has a different focus from the other 12 tracks.


Lost in Worship II is a combination of Scott Brooks on acoustic guitar and vocals with David Brooks featured on improvisational C-flute on twelve of the songs and improvisational double pennywhistle on the fifth song.  Hence 13 songs with David on improvisational flute on every one of them!  So, thank you David for your flute playing!  And, thank you Ann (Brooks) for creating the album cover!


Before telling you more about the album - including a fuller album description, where you can purchase it, and we thought you might like to first hear 30 second samples for each of the 13 tracks/songs.  So, feel free to give it a listen by clicking on any song that you would like to hear.  Or if you would like to hear all 13 samples, you can simply click on the first song and it will play sequentially through all 13 song samples. 





If you would like to purchase Lost in Worship II, you can buy copies from us in person for $5.00 each.  Alternately, you can buy the physical CD (coming soon) and online formats (mp3, MP3-320, and FLAC files) for either the entire album or individual tracks at either CDBaby (where we got the album published), or at Amazon.

I hope you find it very easy to enter into the worship of our amazing God as you listen to “Lost in Worship II”!

This album is similar to our first album titled, “Lost in Worship”, in that it also has 13 original songs. But it is different in that 6 of the 13 songs are improvisational extended worship. So for example, you will most likely enjoy the worship of the first song (i.e. Track 1) and might desire for it to continue with some additional lingering worship. Hence Track 2, which is improvisational worship based on Track 1! The same is true for 5 other tracks that have 5 corresponding improvisational worship tracks. The only track that doesn’t have a corresponding improvisational track is Track 5 called, “The prayer of my heart” – which is a sung prayer and therefore has a different focus from the other 12 tracks.

Besides this improvisational extended worship, this album is still similar to “Lost in Worship” in the following five ways:

1: I looked to Jesus to help me to keep my heart very open to Him so that His love could flow through my heart back to Him as I worshipped Him.

2: To help keep it personal, the lyrics tend to be in first person instead of in third person. In other words, “I worship You, Jesus” instead of “We worship You, Jesus.”

3: The initial recording was only me privately worshipping Jesus with guitar and vocal – so as to help me to not be distracted by others listening or by thinking how others would eventually like the music. 

4: The same concepts about worship come through in the music. To explain… In “Lost in Worship”, I shared in the album description, that there were some very helpful concepts about worship that Jesus fortunately taught me before recording the album. Here is that information quoted verbatim:

+++ Start of Quote 

“Does God need our worship? In John 5, Jesus says that He (who is God), does not accept praise from humans. So, why in John 4 would Jesus say that the Father seeks those who would worship Him in spirit and in truth? If I start with the character of God outlined in the Bible, I see that God is completely humble and not an egotist in any way, but is instead complete in Himself (Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit). So, if He does not need our worship to feed His ego or to meet any need in Him, then why would He want us to worship Him? The short answer: “As a tremendous gift to us!” To explain…

In one of the songs I sing, “If You didn’t take the time to put me together, I simply would not be, so I owe You me.” So, my very existence is a gift from God to me. If it wasn’t for Him, I would not be! In addition to this, in another song I sing about the amazing payment of Jesus shedding His blood on the Cross so that I could be forgiven and eventually make it to Heaven where He will sustain my existence forever!

God could have created trees, animals, but not any humans. And if that was the case, then both you and I would not exist. But that Jesus took the time to create us and is willing to sustain our existence forever is absolutely amazing to me!

And if the most important thing to worship was a plant, then God would point us towards that plant as what we should worship. But it just so happens that the greatest thing is God Himself, and as such it is an incredible privilege for us to appreciate Him even a little bit. But we have no idea how great Jesus is! In fact, in a million years from now, those in Heaven will be learning even more about the wonderfulness of God! 

So, to exist is amazing! And to exist forever is even more amazing! And to forever be growing in appreciation of our Creator whose greatness no one can fathom is more than icing on the cake!”

+++ End of Quote

5: After these first four things, I then added my son, David, with his improvisational flute on all 13 tracks (C-flute on 12 of the tracks and double pennywhistle on track 5). I really enjoy how the Lord has gifted David in his playing, and I hope you enjoy his playing too.

So with all of these things in place, I hope you enjoy how personal the worship is and find it very easy to worship Jesus as you listen to the music.

Lastly, I’d like to thank my son David for his flute playing contribution to the album. (Thanks, David!) I’d also like to thank my sister Linda for encouraging me for years to eventually start recording albums. (Thanks, Linda!) And lastly, I'd like to thank my daughter Ann for creating the album cover. (Thanks, Ann!)

So once again, I hope you find it very easy to enter into the worship of our amazing God as you listen to “Lost in Worship II”!

With Jesus’ love,

Scott

If you are curious as to how we created the album, we owe a debt to our friend Bill Myers who gave us great equipment recommendations.  (Thanks, Bill!)  So, we had the following equipment to record with:

1. Instruments:  Taylor acoustic guitar, Yamaha C-flute, and a double pennywhistle.
2. Sterling Microphones.
3. Monster cables with gold plated connectors.
4. M-Audio Fast Track to input the audio and output it over USB.
5. Windows 7 Laptop with the M-Audio client that feeds to the ProTools SE client.
6. Recording and mastering in ProTools SE and outputting separate high fidelity .wav files.  One for each track.
7. Uploading the huge .wav files to CDBaby.

So, we hope you enjoy Lost In Worship II
