Editorial Reviews

While the modern worship movement has revolutionized Christian music, lead worshippers realized that in their zeal to write cutting-edge church music they forgot the songs that were cutting that "edge" once upon a time. Add some creative contemporary arrangements and electricity to the originals and you have the composite that makes up the Ancient and Modern Hymns collection. For those who caught Passion artists singing some of these timeless classics during the 2003 tour, you know how emotionally moving they are live. Producer Nathan Nockels keeps that in mind and does a great job of capturing the live essence recorded in Atlanta's North Point Community Church. Of course no Passion release can be without David Crowder and Chris Tomlin and both give us some special moments on Hymns, including Crowder's "Doxology" and the magnificent "All Creatures Of Our God and King." Tomlin's reworking of "O Worship The King" and the compelling "Take My Life" are not to be outdone. Nockels and wife Christy (known as Watermark) also provide one of the finer moments with the elegant beauty of "Praise To The Lord the Almighty." Matt Redman and Charlie Hall fill out the release with a solid but unremarkable quality. --Michael Lyttle

5.0 out of 5 stars I adore it April 26, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have been waiting for a CD like this for years. Having grown up in a conservative church environment, I have always had an affinity for the hymns that we sang in my youth in the old stuffy church that lacked AC. I connect with God through them not only because of the link to my past, but also because they are much more musically and lyrically deep than many of today's worship songs.
The problem is that until this release from Passion, most hymn compilations that I had encountered were directed more towards the "mature" crowd (e.g. major usage of pipe organs or cheesy background vocals.) This release marries the old songs that I love with artists I have grown to love from other Passion CDs, including David Crowder, Chris Tomlin, and Charlie Hall.
These renditions are amazing, and I am still getting tingleys on my fourth or fifth listen to the CD. The new approach to these classic songs breathes new life into them, and if you loved "Take My Life (and Let It Be)" before, wait until you hear it now. I feel spent after listening to the CD.
I do have a minor complaint in the song selection, because there are a couple songs that I have not even heard of before on this disc, which are taking the place of other songs that I would love to hear. But I am hoping that this becomes a series that will breathe the same new life into several other of my old favorites. And this small complaint does not detract from the feeling of awe that I have had with this worship experience.
If you love hymns and you love the previous work of Passion artists, you will love this disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars True Songs That Magnify Our Holy God October 28, 2004
Format:Audio CD
While I appreciate some of the music that has been coming out of the Praise & Worship movement over the past few years, some of it is simply poor theology and too man-centered. That is not the case in this CD by Passion. The hymns of old and new are blended together and yet all glory and honor is given to our holy God in this collection. While traditionalist will not enjoy the upbeat tempo of some of the hymns, the modernist will enjoy the music as well as the God-honoring words of the great hymns of the faith.

What a relief to see the classic hymns coming back. So many younger pastors are seeing the need to glorify God and not just draw a crowd by using music. How we need biblical songs to come back and draw us near to our God in holiness and awe. Thanks Passion for doing this with this CD.

Format:Audio CD
Or "A View from the Other Side"
To explain why I like this CD, I have to give some of my background: I grew up in a hymn-singing church (organ, piano and maybe a trumpet or two on Easter) and have spent the last four years at college going to a church where they sing only psalms with no instruments (As a side note, as shocking as such a church may sound to some, I've never seen a congregation who loved singing and loved *what* they were singing more than that group of people. I have really grown in my knowledge and appreciation of the worship of God and the psalms, not to mention the improvement in my singing skills).
In any case, as I move on to another part of the country, I'm faced with the decision of where to worship, and as a result, HOW to worship. I guess I'm a "not-so-old fogey" because I really like the old stuff and have trouble appreciating/liking new music, Christian or otherwise, whatever I may think of the theology behind it (the theology of worship, that is), which, by the way, I'm still working on understanding.
All this is to say that this CD is great for anyone who's grown up on the great hymns of the past but is interested in giving the new styles a chance. The words and (for the most part) tunes in this CD are familiar favorites from the past with all their lyrical beauty and depth, but with the musical and vocal stylings of the present.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, Rich, Rewarding May 5, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I can't tell you how happy I was to hear the first track on this CD (Tomlin's version of 'O Worship The King'). I knew right away that it wasn't going to be a cheesy hymns redo, but fresh life breathed into songs I have treasured all my life. Get the CD, if only for the quality, musicality and power alone. But, I love 'Hymns Ancient and Modern' because it refuses to allow the winds of modern worship to blow these great classic hymns out of the contemporary church. Thank you Passion!
I have especially enjoyed the discovery of "Here Is Love," probably the coolest musical track on the CD and a hymn I had not heard until Matt Redman's introduction. Beautiful! And like many of the hymns on this disc, a simple bridge/chorus section has been added that makes the Hymn sing more like a chorus, while remaining steeped in rich lyrical content.
Charlie Hall brings great versions of "How Great Thou Art" (simple, yet with a really nice groove), "Christ The Solid Rock," (one of the CD's best) and "Joyful, Joyful."
Tomlin, Crowder and Nathan and Christy Nockels (Watermark) add track after track of excellence, merging incredible lyrical depth with arrangements that are infectious and powerful. Christy's version of "Praise To The Lord" has stayed on repeat in my CD player for many long stretches, yet it moves me every time.
This is one of Passion's best, and I, for one, am hoping for a Hymns Volume 2!
