It brings me joy to share this special project of hymns, classics and originals that I produced during the recent pandemic. It was an honor to work with my colleagues Alan Broadbent, Billy Martin, Andre Mayeux and the late Steve Hall to produce these piano orchestrations. It is my desire to share more peace and joy through my musical gifts. Through the inspiration of Johann Sebastian Bach signing his works, "Soli Del Gloria," I hope that the music moves you and gives glory to God!
Many of the arrangements on this album were inspired by my classical background. They also incorporate my gift of combining a hymn with a classical theme to create a new and moving piece of music. I composed "A Lullaby" for our grandson Ryan Hall when he was born in 2020. "Precious Lord Take My Hand" is recorded in memory of my late mother-in-law Helene Malbon. "Cristo Redentor" (translated as "Christ the Redeemer") is a jazz selection from the Disney Pixar movie, "Soul."
“The album is a Spiritual masterpiece that combines Inspirational hymns and Classical music.”

“Peggy Duquesnel escapes by sitting quietly at her piano. There, she sets her nimble fingers free to dance gracefully atop the keys, inevitably finding their way into her musical comfort zone.”
- Annie Carlini, Exclusive Magazine
“Soothed with soul bared, Duquesnel's piano emotes a hybrid of classical music and inspirational hymns. These intimate, meditative sessions spawned ''Piano for My Soul,'' Duquesnel's sixteenth album, releasing April 8 on her JoySpring Music imprint”
