Classic gospel songs
on 14 October 2010
Two magnificent singers backed by top orchestral support makes for the kind of music that some people would regard as ideal Sunday listening. Actually, I decided to review this album on a Thursday, but it sounds good at any time to my ears.
The songs here will be familiar to anybody who even listens to a little gospel music , including Whispering hope, Abide with me, In the garden, It is no secret, Rock of ages, All through the night, You'll never walk alone, The Lord is my shepherd and Peace in the valley. Some of these songs have achieved fame far beyond their gospel roots, notably You'll never walk alone, which has become a sporting anthem. The version here is outstanding. The title track has long been one of my favorite gospel songs, but I don't come across it on this type of album as often as I would like to, which makes it all the more welcome here.
I don't have a huge gospel music collection, but do enjoy listening to the music and this album is among the best of its kind. There are no liner notes, just a track listing with credits, but on this budget release, they don't matter.
