Seeing as how we are all becoming aware of the glories of acappella, it would be remiss of Cross Rhythms to permit ignorance of probably the best example of the Christian form currently in existence. The crop of Knudsen's involved here are five of 10 extremely musical brothers who in various combinations sing doo-wop, contemporary, barbershop, jazz and all roads off. They are renowned for extraordinary vocal harmony that you can't slide a knife through. This set is in the Glad territory, but even way beyond that excellent group in sheer brilliance. So it's familiar hymns, "Beautiful Saviour", "The Lord's Prayer", "How Great Thou Art" etc and a touching "Love At Home" sung with their mother three months before she died. A stunning album. By the way, if you're acappella-oriented you need Primarily Acappella's catalogue, mainly secular, but some Christian stuff not available here.
