Fierce Love chronicles the life and music of composer and performing and recording artist Adrian Snell. Adrian shares the personal experiences and places that inspired his work, including timeless compositions like The Passion, Alpha + Omega and City of Peace.

In 1999 Adrian made a bold and ultimately life-changing decision to leave the stage and studio and train as a music therapist. During this training and his subsequent 16 years of working with children with special needs, his relationship with music—and with those with whom music making would be the primary means of communication—changed profoundly.

Fierce Love follows that process, honestly and often movingly, as Adrian shares personal insights on the equal value of all human life and on a deeper understanding and acceptance of God’s love and forgiveness.

This is a “fierce love” that binds us and sees in all of us a work of art.

Over many decades, Adrian Snell has carved out a unique role in the musical world, attracting large audiences with his accessible, lyrical, and profound compositions. Here he tells his story, including his recent and bold foray into music therapy. Winsome and heartfelt, it would be impossible not to be moved and enriched by Fierce Love.

Jeremy Begbie, Duke University
