Oldies but Goodies
As a Methodist churchgoer I support the use of a wide range of music in worship but it's a delightful indulgence to listen to 50 old hymns here. Some of the recordings are well over 40 years old, which means that the 'arranged' hymns sound a bit dated, but the performances nicely balance fervour and restraint, depending on what's needed. One thing I particularly like is the inclusion, along with a great many general favourites, of a significant number of hymns for specific seasons in the Christian Year. For the most part you get the tune you expect, though I personally prefer Blaenwern for Love Divine. Recommended both to the practising Christian and the listener who regards church music in the same light as general nostalgia.
Despite being a teenager I found this to be a highly comprehensive collection of music. However, some of the tracks were a little tepid, not quite the rousing inspirational anthems that they could be. But when it hits the spot, as frequently happens on CD1, music listening could get little better.
A compelation of great golden oldie christian songs
I found this CD to be a very contempory compelation of some of the greatest christian songs ever written. I was very impressed witht he way they are sung and i found it very relaxing to listen to. This CD would probably not be found in a teenagers CD collection but it is a very beautiful CD which i enjoyed listening to a great deal. The content of the CD is also very good having many songs on it which also makes it a very reasonable price.
