Series Includes Adonai, the Internationally-Acclaimed Messianic Worship Classic Which Now Presents a New Sonic Experience with a Spectacular Remastered Edition


Galilee of the Nations Music, the world leader in Messianic Praise & Worship music, has announced August 7 as the launch date for its highly anticipated, five-volume The Names of God series, which includes the CDs Adonai, Elohim, Yeshua, Sar Shalom and Son of David. Originally released with price points of $15.98 to $16.98, each CD has been re-packaged for a special price of $11.99.

“The Father longs for His children to know Him, who He is, and by the names that describe His character,” says producer Yochanan Ben Yehuda, who also is Galilee of the Nations Music Founder and President. “Only then can we, in the words of the prophet Isaiah, ‘more fully trust in the name of the Lord and rely on God’. The Names of God series was designed for this very reason. You’ll discover God’s character revealed through Scripture and song. Knowing God’s name provides the foundation for understanding His nature.”

Each CD in the series celebrates the nature of God as revealed by His name. Elohim offers worship from the heart of Israel to the one and only true, all powerful God of the universe, who is the same yesterday, today and forever. Yeshua, from worship leader Karen Davis, extols the Hebrew name of Jesus, the Messiah, the Son of God, the Savior of the world. Sar Shalom, also from Davis, carries the heart of God for His ancient people Israel and His people in every nation to know the peace and comfort of His salvation in Messiah Yeshua, Sar Shalom (The Prince of Peace). Son of David blends Hebrew and English with ancient instruments and modern day psalms to build a throne of praise for Yeshua, the holy Son of David.

The centerpiece of the series is the re-release of the completely re-mastered classic Messianic worship CD, Adonai. Produced by Yochanan Ben Yehuda, Adonai was first released in 1998 on the Integrity Music label. Recorded during the first Year of Jubilee to be celebrated in more than two millennia, the project was the first album recorded and distributed worldwide by believers in the land of Israel. This multi-artist album was distributed into 160 nations and sold more than 250,000 units.

Adonai blends the English and Hebrew languages as it weaves modern world music with the history and the culture of Israel to produce a powerful journey of worship. The spectacular 14th Anniversary Edition features 15 songs of Messianic praise and worship from such revered artists as Barry and Batya Segal, Karen Davis, Daniel Kopp, Sarah Lieberman, Chaim Warshawsky, Esther Horesh, Paul Wilbur and Chuck King.

God is Adonai, our Lord and Master, and the CD celebrates that fact with both unbridled joy and solemn reverence. The project begins, appropriately, with the plaintive recitation of the Aaronic Benediction, then husband and wife worship leaders Barry and Batya Segal usher in a spirit of peace and encouragement with the lilting call to worship, “Rise and Shine.” Strong Middle Eastern rhythms highlight powerful songs of adoration, such as “Praise the Lord” by Daniel Kopp and Sarah Lieberman, and “Holy” by Karen Davis and Chaim Warshawsky. The project flows seamlessly into beautiful contemporary hymns such as Davis’ “The Lord of Hosts,” and the Segals’ “Rejoice Daughter of Zion,” and embraces the classical influences of Israeli soloist Esther Horesh on “Wonderful Savior” and “The Hope.” Narrator Yochanan Ben Yehuda and Batya Segal join forces with Paul Wilbur for the reverent “Year of Jubilee.” Chuck King closes the project with a minor keyed reminder that Adonai, the Lord, remembers His covenant to a thousand generations.

The Names of God series will be released through Galilee of the Nations Music and distributed to the Christian marketplace through Provident Music Distribution. The series will be distributed to mainstream retailers this fall through Sony. For more information on Galilee of the Nations Music and The Names of God series, visit
