Comments:Rachel A. Spry said:

Jacobs' performance embodies clarity of articulation and phrasing, accomplished through technical expertise and artistic registration. He is one with the music, allowing the listener to become vunerable to its emotions, and be in the "Now," which is where we as humans meet and experience God.
