Not original recordings of these timeless songs!
by Customer - reviewed on January 28, 2013
So happy to see some of the timeless inspirational songs which were the soundtrack for my youth, but saddened in the choice of the arrangements included. Many of these are not the original recordings that I knew and loved.
Different than I expected
by Customer - reviewed on February 21, 2013
I was excited that someone had compiled all of my favorites into one CD. I was expecting to hear the original artists doing the same arrangements that made them my favorites to begin with. I was disappointed that the arrangements were done differently and by different artists.
Great cd with a lot of favorites!

I absolutely love this cd! I love to listen to these songs anytime of day, any day of the week to welcome the Spirit into our home. My family enjoys listening to these all time favorites.
Not quite what I was hoping for
by Customer - reviewed on January 20, 2013
Although the songs are great, I was disappointed that more than one song was a different arrangement/singer than the version I knew and loved.
