Unfailing Love, a CD of Christian praise and worship, is the first CD by Salt Spring musician David Carl Vollrath. Vollrath wrote all of the CD's music and lyrics, plays acoustic guitar and sings lead vocals on all 12 tracks.

Vollrath and his family worship at the Community Gospel Chapel, where he is involved with the praise and worship music ministry. He has held the same position with the Salt Spring Baptist Church, and wrote the CD's title track for the occasion of his baptism at that church. Vollrath began playing guitar at age 13 and says he "immediately had a desire to write his own music and lyrics." In 1994, two years after "accepting Jesus as his Lord and Saviour," he "began writing songs to glorify the Lord."

Unfailing Love was produced by Vollrath and Ramesh Meyers of Allowed Sound Studio, engineered by Meyers and mastered by Paul Brosseau at Nomad Music. Contributing musicians are Meyers, Marlene Cormack, Laurent Boucher, Paula Vollrath and Susheela Dawne. Before moving to Salt Spring, Vollrath attended the Salvation Army's Highpoint Community Church in Victoria, and before moving to the west coast was also involved with the Salvation Army's Sault Ste. Marie Corp. in Ontario.

As a student of the craft of lyric writing, Vollrath hopes to encourage and assist others in writing original Christian songs for praise and worship by offering songwriting workshops at churches. Unfailing Love is released by Vollrath's own record label called Living Water Music.
