Among others, one of the most moving, inspirational selections of this CD is his rendition of "How Great Thou Art". It is sung meditatively, yet with a power that infuses the soul with reverence. Then, when the melody softens and Griffith begins to pronounce the lines of the hymn in a powerful voice, it seems that the veil of time has been lifted away, and we are witnessing the focus of all Christianity on one single theme in one powerful and reverent moment. For a few brief moments, the voice we hear is the chorus of the patriarchs, the apostles, the martyrs, and the saved at all times and everywhere resounding down through the ages - for the message it brings is timeless in its reverence and exaltation of the greatness of God.
Also of note is Griffith's excellent balance between the old and the new. Portions of a few of the medleys do come across as being infused with bluegrass/western-like guitar runs, but - on a scope uncommon for most recordings of older hymns - Griffith is consistently very faithful to the old melodies. The harmony and backup vocals are centered around the melody of the songs, not around the lead singer.
All in all, this is a CD very well worth listening to. Although it is certain to bring on fond memories, its value lies in its being conducive to reflection, introspection, and prayer. Griffith's own testimony and expressive talent further enhance its natural, ageless luster.
