“I was inspired to create this album after reflecting on how much the piano nourishes my soul, whether I am playing for my own enjoyment or performing for an audience. Many of the arrangements on this album were inspired by my classical background and incorporate my gift of combining a hymn with a classical theme to create a new and moving piece of music,” said Duquesnel who released a companion nature video for each song on the disc as well as piano tutorials for several selections from the album.

Duquesnel also published an accompanying set of her piano arrangements, “Piano for My Soul” – Volume One, consisting of four hymns and classic solo piano arrangements as well as her original song “A Lullaby,” written after the birth of her grandson.
