One of four albums in a series from the best exponent of the harp in Christian music, and whilst harp music might seem to be another candidate for relegation to the elevator, for me the instrument has a certain wistful quality that transcends any underlying cheesiness. Fortunately, there are no other musicians involved in this, so it's just Carol giving us some classic music, including "What A Friend", "Amazing Grace", "As The Deer", "Blessed Assurance", "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus", "O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go", and of course the title track, and I'm glad to see Joseph Parry's tune "Aberystwyth" being used, instead of one of the others that our American friends insist on putting to Charles Wesley's timeless words. One of the best albums of its type that I've heard for yonx.
