I enjoy listening to this wonderful, sacred music while sitting in traffic.
Gigi7
It is particularly nice because they move from one hymn to another, and without singing or playing all verses.

I have given it to 2 friends for their Birthday gifts and they each love it as well!

The music is great. The Hymns are classic in wording and melody which is commendable since the traditional words are becoming harder to find. My regret is that I did not realize the first CD is only short (40 seconds to 2 minutes) excepts of the hymns consisting of a verse or sometimes only the refrain. They are not complete hymns or even the first and last verses. The second CD does contain complete (at least a complete verse or two) pieces, although in my opinion the hymns of the first CD are the ones I most want to hear.

This album contains many well-selected, beautifully arranged, and wonderfully presented hymns of the church. It is a pleasure to listen to, and I recommend it to all. My one complaint is that, in many cases, only one or two verses of the hymns are sung so that I am left wanting more. But I guess they are keeping the tracks short to so that they can fit more different hymns on the CD. So the advantage is that there are a LOT of different hymns, but the drawback is that most of them are pretty short.

Don't be fooled by the samples. They've taken some of the greatest hymns ever composed, sung them beautifully but abridged them almost beyond recognition. It may benefit an organ-student or a recent convert who'd like a varied `sampler' of traditional church music. But to the mature hymn-loving believer it's a disaster of a CD. They've managed to outdo the Football Association by making "Abide with Me" even shorter than the F.A. Cup version. The medleys sound a little contrived for me, but may suit some tastes. Heaven knows why they decided to record the 1st and 3rd verses of a personal favourite of mine "Once to Every Man and Nation". This hymn is what I would term `climactic' in that the final two lines are a sort of theological `punch-line' for the entire hymn. The reckless omission of verses 2 and 4 would have James Russell Lowell turning in his grave!!!

The quality of the singing is the only redeeming feature of this CD. Indeed the appalling abridgements are all the more painful for the excellent voices. They ought to have recorded full-length hymns on 4 CDs and doubled the price. I'd have happily paid $22 for that. But this product, in its current state, would be poor value for money at 11 cents - never mind 11 dollars!!!

I had a set of cassette tapes of this album for years, and I've finally wore them out. This is one of the very best compilations I've ever heard of these glorious hymns the way they were meant to be sung - (no contemporary twists and beats) - along with glorious orchestration that has to rival Heaven's!
My ONLY regret is that, in some instances, these are medleys as opposed to complete hymns - they're so beautiful, I wish they'd go on forever!

These 2 CDs are beautifully done. The arrangements are exceptional. The symphony is excellent. The voices are well blended and superbly directed. I have bought, so far, half dozen of these and given them as gifts to grateful, impressed recipients. These are traditional hymns of the church. The medleys move quickly, with none of the hymns including all verses. It keeps the listener's attention, with beautiful transitions between pieces within each medley. The few solos are done by accomplished artists. The first CD is a selection of hymn medleys chosen around the lines of the Lord's Prayer. The second CD consists of medleys of additional familiar hymns. Organ is included with orchestra. Beautiful blends!!

This collection of choral hymns is performed well by a choir who enunciates the text clearly. The decline of traditional hymns being sung in church made me long for their poetry and beauty. This CD satisfies that need with the inclusion of many hymns I was raised on. And now my children will hear them performed. This cd will be a gift to other this holiday season.

I came across this CD when researching church hymns on Amazon. Absolutely love it. Played at Christmas during the day while fixing dinner and family members wanted to know what it was. Made my mother cry. Everyone wanted the CD. I give it as thank you gifts now. Huge hit. Wonderful CD.

This is a nice collection of hymns, but done in a theatrical style, connecting groups of hymns without singing all of the verses (or at least the most familiar) verses. If you like splashy, stirring, hollywood renditions of hymns, you'll like this. If you don't like that sort of thing, you won't like it. I am planning to give my set to a family member who will appreciate it.
