I believe this was released sometime around 1993 or 1994, but I am not positive. I think the audio quality on this album leaves something to be desired. I did my best to "clean up" the tracks in Audacity. Not exactly pro audio editing techniques, but I feel the end result of what I am sharing with you here is actually an improvement from the original release. Still not as clear as I would hope the music could be but certainly an improvement from the original tracks.
J. (Joseph) Hugh Rose was born November 21st, 1934 in Jewett, Ohio. He served as the indelible announcer of the Harvestime radio ministry for forty years. His music entertained and ministered to many through his time on this planet. His signature songs "The Lord's Prayer" and "Down From His Glory" (a classic -and a personal favorite of mine- covered by a number of Pentecostal artists) blessed saints at weddings, funerals, church dedications, and at camp meetings.
He did not stray too far from home and pastored in Jewett at the Harrison Hills United Pentecostal Church. He also served on the Ohio District Board and the Board of Education for the United Pentecostal Church.
He passed away on September 23, 2010.
I mentioned that I do not know how many records he released, but I do know of two from images I found online. I will continue to look for these albums and will be sure to share them here, especially if they feature more tracks than what was on this album. He had a record on the Lefevre Sound label and what looks like a cassette album in the 1980's.
The album I bring to you today may not be a Christmas record, but "Down From His Glory" is an amazing Christmas song to celebrate the season!
