Another great thing about this new collection is that there are all new liner wrotes written by Allan, Todd, and Amy. Selah is great for writing notes about each song--either the background of the hymn or a personal meaning it has for someone in the group.
So, purchase this box set, put it on the disc-changer, have a Selah concert at home, and sing along!
One of my favorite things about this group is that, in addition to their beautiful hymn arrangements, on each CD is at least one classic contemporary Christian song (back from when it was known as "Jesus music"). There are redo's of songs done by Evie, Larry Norman, Russ Taff, Cynthia Clawson, Andre Crouch, etc. The fourth CD of this set contains a new version of "There is a Redeemer" by the incomparable Keith Green. There is also a wonderful rendition of Andre Crouch's "I Didn't Think It Could Be ('Til It Happened to Me)." Actually, I believe each CD in the set has at least one Andre Crouch song [hey guys--if you read these amazon reviews, would you consider recording "Soon and Very Soon" some time?!] Probably my favorite new song off this set is the old hymn "Revive Us Again." Not only is it a great chance to really hear the latest member of Selah, Amy Perry, sing, it is a fantastic song to kick off the new year with.
The last thing of note about Timeless is the book included--there is a history of the group and how they formed (written by Todd Smith) as well as a lot of new liner notes and hymn stories.
"Timeless: The Selah Collection": What a fantastic gift to give or receive!
Released in 2007, this is a four disc CD set. The last disc is a bonus disc, but the first three are their first three studio releases. Since I didn't have any of these discs, it made a perfect way to get them.
Selah has several trademarks. They've got great harmonies, and they are known for creating passionate arrangements of classic hymns that make them seem alive in a new way. The trio consists of Todd Smith, his sister Nicol Sponberg, and their friend Allan Hall. Todd and Nicol do most of the vocals, although Allan gets into the act every so often. Allan's main contribution is his wonderful piano playing which is just as much a part of their sound as their harmonies. Another thing they like to do is include a song or two on each disc in Kituba, the native language in the part of Zaire where Todd and Nicol grew up as missionary kids.
Disc one is their 1999 debut, Be Still My Soul. This disc is almost nothing but hymns, with versions of "Great is Thy Faithfulness," "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross," and "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus" here. They do include some more modern classics like Larry Norman's "Sweet, Sweet Song of Salvation" and Andre Crouch's "The Blood will Never Lose Its Power." While most of the songs are fairly inspirational in their arrangements, they do get into Gospel once or twice.Read more ›

There are many songs in this album I really like. There are individual CDs in here that I don't play as much. There are others that I can't get enough of. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Jana D
