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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

This CD is so rad! Chris Rice is just genuinely good, and he does some of the coolest harmonies I have ever heard on some of these songs. You need this!
