New York, NY – (June 1, 2011) – On July 12th, the newest release by well-known artist Fernando Ortega will be available through Stylos Records/Word Distribution. After 5 years since his last release, Ortega has once again teamed up with producer John Andrew Schreiner. This highly anticipated album titled, Come Down O Love Divine, offers listeners a rich and beautifully composed compilation of original instrumental songs and lyrical hymns fueled by Ortega’s intentional, worshipful approach to songwriting and his perspective on the current culture’s fractured relationship with prayer and meditation.

In concert with the liturgical focus new to Ortega’s personal and professional life, Come Down O Love Divine still speaks to the musician’s evangelical roots. “Just As I Am” alludes to Billy Graham’s invitation hymn, and tucked into the final phrases of the piece is a moving clip from one of Graham’s sermons, in which he speaks to his deep need for Christ in a plaintive tone somewhat uncommon for the evangelist.

“Trisagion,” which is perhaps the most heavily influenced by Ortega’s role as an Anglican music leader, is an ancient song with present day implications. The piece, translated “Thrice Holy” from the Greek, calls on God for his mercy while praising his holiness and might. In his instrumentation and choir composition, Ortega aids the listener in elevating the focus from this world to the world beyond.

Come Down O Love Divine is really about a longing for the experience of heaven on earth,” says Ortega. “That is how I think we are supposed to approach life, and I think for me, this album is about how every aspect of our lives should be measured out by the narrative of Christ’s life. Every year, through the journey of each Holy season, Christ’s ministry starts again and again; living life this way - so intentionally - affects how you think about everything.”

Label mate and fan Sandi Patty adds, “There are few projects that can actually change an environment. Listening to this new CD (Come Down O Love Divine) I find that the atmosphere is changed--my home, my car, my heart. Fernando's music inspires and calms--ministers and quiets. Thank you Fernando for this gift that enlightens everywhere it is heard.”
