Part of the stated purpose of "Indelible Grace" is "to help the church recover the tradition of putting old hymns to new music for each generation," and that they have done well. How much better does their acclamation of "Arise, My Soul, Arise!" capture urgency of Wesley's self-adjuration, for how can one whom Christ has drawn linger in guilt when "before the throne [his] Surety stands"? And what wonderfully assuring words we're given in the lines: "Yes, I to the end shall endure / As sure as the earnest is given / More happy but not more secure / The glorified spirits in heaven." In my experience, one can profitably meditate on the words herein.
Though the album is performed by a college ministry, it does not at all betray its unlikely origins. It surpassed my expectations and is done remarkably well. Indeed, most of the artists have their own recording contracts (go figure, them belonging to a church near Nashville and all). I will admit, I did not like some of the new tunes at first (e.g., "And Can It Be") because I was familiar with and so enjoyed singing the old ones in church and in the shower, but they grew on me.Read more ›
In style the disc is alt-folk rock (somewhat like Caedmon's Call), with a mix of electric and acoustic guitars, bass, piano, drums/percussion spiced with accordion, mandolin, jew's harp, and harmonica. This is a masterful recording and a delightful listen, full of beautiful music and timeless lyrics. I whole-heartedly recommend it!

Hymns set to contemporary tunes. Very appealing and well done. If you miss the hymns or on the other hand, think that they are outdated, you might want to give this CD a listen.Published on April 17, 2014 by Frankly Frank

I've been listening to this CD for the last 2 weeks non-stop. It is excellent! The lyrics have a theological depth that you just don't find in many modern-day worship CDs. Read morePublished on February 24, 2007 by Jeff Ballein
