Really nice Sunday listening

This CD is a great thing to put on and have in the background on Sunday. It sets a wonderful mood as you get ready for Church. I would recommend it for sure.

Whenever I feel overwhelmed, I sit and listen to this CD and let it lift me up and take me in. Beautiful.
I was disappointed in this recording.

I love acoustic guitar and soothing instrumental renditions of sacred music. However, this recording is not soothing to me, due to the squeaking of the hand and fingers on the strings and neck of the guitar. For me, that's like fingernails on a chalkboard. If that doesn't bother you, then buy it. The songs are lovely.
