Produced and arranged by Don Marsh this collection of instrumental hymns contains contemporary arrangements of many favourites, all with a unique combination of solo instruments. Flute, saxophone, oboe, violin, cello, and many more wonderful sounds light up, what is, a very good album. Some hymns, like "O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go" and "I Sing The Mighty Power Of God" weren't so well known to me, but I still found them very listenable. Of course, you can't stop yourself singing along with those you do know, such as the title track and "Rock Of Ages", and I really enjoyed that. The only downside is that the 15 tracks only last for 35 minutes in total but, that aside, this album really helped me meditate through a quite stressful time.
