50 Golden Hymns - Instrumental - 3CD Set
CLASSIC FOX RECORDS
His three-disc set includes instrumental versions of well-known hymns like "Amazing Grace," "The Lord's My Shepherd," "What a Friend We Have in Jesus," and "How Great Thou Art." The arrangements range from sweeping, full-orchestra renditions to solo piano -- a gentle piano version of "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing" is a highlight. There are few rather stilted contemporary instrumentals -- the badly programmed percussion in "Beneath the Cross of Jesus" is a distraction. But for the most part, 50 Golden Hymns is workable as background music.
