Customer Review

on 29 October 2003
This lovely CD has heart, soul, and superb musicianship, and much credit must be given to Vince Gill, who with Brown Bannister did most of the arrangements, wrote two of the songs, sings on one, and plays guitar or mandolin on all but one track. Some of the songs are given a gentle rendition, and others a rousing interpretation, like tracks # 2 and # 14, with their up-tempo Celtic sound, but all are inspired and beautiful.
Favorites include the delicate and serene "Softly and Tenderly", the terrific duet with Vince, "Nothing but the Blood", with its gospel music rhythm, and the exquisite purity of the "What a Friend We Have in Jesus"/"Old Rugged Cross"/"How Great Thou Art" medley, with just the trio of Michael Omartian on piano, John Catchings on cello, and Vince on electric guitar backing the vocal.
"What You Already Own" was written by Amy, and it has honest words full of true Christian spirit; she also co-wrote two other songs on this album, evidence of her songwriting talent. The foldout insert contains all the lyrics, and some liner notes by Amy where she describes the meaning these songs have for her, going back to early childhood and her "earliest sonic memory". The sound is excellent, and total time 53'17.
Amy makes the most of her voice with musical intelligence, a heartfelt delivery of the lyrics, and plain and simple good taste in her choice of material; paired with the artistry of her husband Vince Gill, this CD is a winner.
