Shalom Chaverim or Peace Be With You is a collection of popular Israeli songs, some based on Scripture, others originating with well-known composers; plus, three are by Peter van Woerden, nephew of Corrie ten Boom.
Govert Roos, a “natural musical talent,” is just a pleasure to listen to. The music was recorded live by our Romanian coworkers. Ghighi Iovin teams up with Govert Roos on track 7 and 10.
Govert Roos is the son-in-law of the late Dr. Wim Malgo, Founder of Midnight Call Ministries, and is presently serving as Music Director at Midnight Call’s Zion’s Hall Church in Zurich, Switzerland.
