Product Description


WELL...a fitting word has not yet been invented to adequately describe this new recording of Salvation Army vocal classics by The King's Singers. I've lined them all up, then discarded them one by one: divine, sublime, impossible, inhuman. I guess we've just never needed a quintessential superlative before this - and may never again. If you know the name The King's Singers, you'll already know why you have to hear this music for yourself. Their impeccable musicality, phrasing, diction and erudite poise - right down to the amount of white cuff showing on their tuxedo sleeves - have long been the hallmark of the very best in vocal ensembles. So, why all the hoo-ha? The buzz surrounding their latest recording, The Quiet Heart, is all about its unusual content. Nineteen of the Army's best-loved choral treasures form an anthology of our vocal heritage. 'Spirit Divine', 'God's Moment', 'His Provison', 'In the Secret Of Thy Presence'...the list reflects some of the most precious gems ever sung in our meetings. 'In The Stillness', 'Christ's Part', 'Intercede, O Lord', 'Reflections'...the list also includes some of the Army's higher art as well. Taken as a whole, this body of material reveals our sung theology - our holiness roots, our yearning for the deeper life. I believe this to be a unique genre of Christian song, quite unparalleled in any other tradition. To have this material recorded with such spiritual and musical empathy is a gift to us. And it will surely be a powerful testament and vehicle for sharing the gospel message when released to the public market. At last we have a model for vocal music of the most compelling impact. If our singers could only listen to this recording with ears to hear - what a difference would be realised in their method and their communication! I foretell that The Quiet Heart will gain a brand new sector to The King's Singers' fan base with this winsome recording. And along with many of you, I eagerly await the next collab --Major Len Ballantine, Salvationist Saturday 13th January 2007

CD Description

Nineteen classic Salvation Army songs, many of which are rarely heard nowadays, sung in exquisite fashion by the world-renowned King's Singers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like nothing you've ever heard before 9 Jun 2011
By James Sommerville - Published on
It is a pity that this album and its successors--"Reflections" and "In This Quiet Moment"--are available from Amazon only as Mp3s. I hope that Amazon will make them available in their CD format. I had expected familiar gospel songs, and a couple of the songs on this album do have familiar lyrics, but all of the tunes are new to me. The hymns are from a time in the past--I suspect maybe from the 1920's to 1950's judging by the "thee's" and "thou's." These are hymns of deep devotion, sung with unbelievable purity and sweetness. Whether these hymns are great music or great poetry, I can't say, but the devotional quality of the words and the musical artistry is just wonderful. You will have to search the web to find out where you can buy the CD's. You really need to booklet to understand the words.

This album is beautifully done and is quieting to the heart as you listen to the words about God. Many of the songs are taken from Scripture. I think my favorite on this album is "To the Hills."
