On Rhapsody of Love, pianist, arranger and recording artist Linda McKechnie expresses the grandeur, beauty and inspiring nature of love. McKechnie's unique musical gift has made her one of the top best-selling instrumental artists in Christian music. In her signature style, Linda has created innovative instrumental arrangements, blending familiar songs of Christian love — from traditional hymns to contemporary love songs — with powerful classical compositions of the masters, such as Schumann, Beethoven, and Debussy. Featuring an exquisitely played grand piano and the beautiful orchestrations of producer Don Marsh, the music is magnificent and emotional, connecting the listeners to one another and touching them with the majesty of God. So, whether you're cherishing a new romantic love, planning a wedding, or remembering vows made long ago, Rhapsody of Love is the music to communicate and nourish your feelings. Listen and share this music that resonates with faith, joy and a celebration of love that endures.

I sincerely hope that as you progress through this website, I may reflect a strong witness to my Christian faith and be an encouragement to you through my recordings on CD, or through the keyboard music and orchestrations that are now available from these recordings for you to perform.
Linda grew up in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, in a very musical family and started playing the piano at the age of four. As a 2nd grader, Linda remembers accompanying her 2nd grade class for their Christmas program. Unusual as it might seem, she loved to practice, play by ear, compose her own melodies, and had a real passion to express her young Christian faith through the hymns and choruses of the church.
