Like Volume 2, American session musicians and singers assembled by David Lyndon Huff offering over-recorded hymns ("Abide With Me", "In The Garden" and "Morning Has Broken") along with others which would only be known to an American congregation. The arrangements are pedestrian and dreary, the hymn research non-existent (no names of composers - all hymns credited, inaccurately, 'traditional') and the packaging shoddy. The kind of releases that give Christian muzak a bad name.
