I finally got bored with my boring, default ringtones in my mobile phone and decided to do something about it. Being a big fan of Gintas’ music I decided to create ringtones from the songs on both his “Gates of Joy” and “Quietness and Trust” albums. After all, who wouldn’t want their mobile phone ringing Gintas’ Herbie Hancock-ish “African Rondo” tune when their friends call? Feel free to download and share these ringtones with your friends while I am able to make them available freely. If you like the albums, both of them are currently available on CDBaby.com, Amazon.com and iTunes.

You may need to right-click / save these zip files to your hard drive. Once downloaded, you need to unzip them. If you do not know how to add ringtones to your mobile phone, you may need to research that on the internet. For iTunes version (for those who have iPhones), simply drag all the MP4 files to your Music library and sync them to your iPhone.
Below on YouTube is track 7, “Gratitude”, from the “Quietness and Trust” album.
The first batch of the CDs has already been shipped and is due to arrive June 6, so the physical CD will be available shortly on CD Baby. For those who wish to bulk order CDs, please email us at email@example.com.
The album was recorded at Gintas’ Raleigh home in 2009 as he was battling a recurrence of throat cancer, which eventually took his life in August, 2010. The album will propagate to other internet stores in the coming weeks. (“Quietness and Trust” had a limited release under the title “Psalms of the Later Rain” in Lithuania in 2009.) You can sample some of the music from “Quietness and Trust” in the music player on this site or on CD Baby. And please remember that the “Quietness and Trust” CD makes a great gift, so you can check CD Baby in the coming weeks to order some additional copies at a 10% discount.
The great musical Prophet of the European Reformation, J. S. Bach wrote, “The final purpose of music is to glorify God and restore the human soul.” As a professional musician and a disciple of Jesus Christ, I fully recognize that responsibility as
the main purpose of my life. - Gintas Abarius
