5.0 out of 5 stars Old hymns with a nice update January 27, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
First of all let me say that I am not in any way a fan of contemporary Christian music. I subscribe to the traditional worship music to the extent that I almost didn't buy this album...

...but I would have been remorseful! After downloading this CD I sat and listened to it, and then again, and again. Chris Rice took some of my favorite hymns and not only gave them a update, but more skillfully kept the soft, peaceful melody of each song. After hearing so many contemporary artists cover hymns and totally slaughter the songs, this was like a breath of fresh air. I would highly recommend this CD to anyone and everyone, even if you are like me and can't even listen to Christian radio.

5.0 out of 5 stars Authentic, relaxing hymn album November 24, 2007
Format:Audio CD
If you're a Chris Rice fan, you'll love this CD. I really like the selection of classic hymns and the fact that Chris doesn't substantially deviate from the traditional rendering of the melodies. Backup harmony and his trademark simple guitar & percussion adds to the charm. Reminds me of Amy Grant's Legacy: Hymns and Faith, another wonderful album. This album works because his singing is sincere, but not too sentimental or overbearing. I love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aptly named CD will soothe your soul November 6, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Chris Rice is a new artist to me and the CD was given to me by a friend. I listened to these beautful old hymns with tears in my eyes. He manages to give these great hymns of the faith a fresh sound while preserving the integrity of the melodies that we all know and love. Old and young alike will appreciate this CD. Great stocking stuffer gift for nearly everyone on your list!

5.0 out of 5 stars Christ-Exalting Hymns December 25, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This CD has some wonderful old hymns in it. This is an older CD but it is new to me. I am discovering that Chris Rice is really a great artist. He has a great voice and he is a master on the piano and guitar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Album Ever April 9, 2008
By N. Maas
Format:Audio CD
I'm not a die-hard fan of any musician, but I've ended up buying almost every Chris Rice album in the stores. I didn't even know about this one until the other day. It's quickly become my favorite album. Chris Rice has a beautiful voice that is easy for me to sing along with (thankfully for all involved I usually sing alone). The hymns chosen for this album were well chosen. The joy of this album is that (unlike many other hymn albums by others), Chris Rice makes familiar hymns new and pleasing without over-the-top embellishments that typically serve to direct heart worship away from Jesus and onto the performer. Most of the songs are largely vocal with gentle harmony and soft guitar or piano accompaniment. Of particular note, I find the song, "O Love That Will Not Let Me Go," my absolute favorite (and I don't think I'd even heard it before this album). If Chris ever reads this review, please make another album like this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stuck on Repeat April 21, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent CD! I love it. It is well with my soul is one of my favorite songs ever and they do an absolutely gorgeous version of it. This CD has been stuck on repeat for all of my media players since I bought it. There really isn't much more to say, except you should buy this CD if your looking for some great hymns.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Hymns October 22, 2009
Format:Audio CD
For this release, Chris Rice went simple. The ten hymns here are accompanied by just his piano or guitar. He also has the only vocal credit although a couple of times, the background vocals sound like they involved more than one voice.

All that just allows the power of these classic words to shine brightly. I mean, really, how can you go wrong with "It is Well with My Soul," "Great is Thy Faithfulness," "A Might Fortress," and "How Great Thou Art." And he does multiple verses of the song. There are no medleys here. Each track is just one hymn. To my shame I must confess that I don't have every verse to these songs memorized, so this is a great way to learn more because (I can't say this enough) they lyrics are awesome.

The only song I was already familiar with is "O Freedom," an old spiritual. Chris' piano is quite fun on this one, really helping give it the proper flavor. Most of the rest of the arrangements are pretty straight up.

There's really nothing outstanding or awe inspiring about the production. But it's simplicity allows you to truly focus on the words. And that is what makes it so great.

The hymns on this album have not been jazzed up in a way that deflects the glory from God but still not really done in a way that the buyer can sing along and/or harmonize. Read more
