"I have quite a few gospel and religious albums, and this is my favorite. Bing sings these hymns in a traditional style with a wonderful and humble softness in his voice. It's like he's in church singing with the choir, not just performing on a record. I only wish there were more tracks. I'm desperately searching for more albums like this one."
Hymns must have sat well with Bing

"For those of you who enjoy hymns, as I do, you will undoubtebly love this CD. From "All Hail the Power," to "What a friend We Have in Jesus," to "Holy Holy Holy," Bing Crosby's majestic voice inspires those who listen to these songs. Even if you really don't love the singing ability of Bing Crosby, I am confident you will greatly appreciate this CD."
"Tradition, tradition"...as the Broadway song goes...

"The first nine tracks here feature famous and mostly Catholic hymns performed by one of the greatest voices of the 20th century. The presentation is "high church mid-century" style, with appropriate supporting instruments and choir. If you like these classic songs, you will enjoy this disc. However, I was greatly disappointed in track ten, a seven-minute recital of the famous prayer of St. Francis of Assisi. On that one, the pomp and ceremony and stately reverence is laid on to a fault. In that piece of writing, one of my favorites, I always sense humility. This oratorio-style arrangement makes it seem almost arrogant instead. This may please some tastes, but I won't play that track again. The first nine, however, are kind of a nice reminder of the church-goer I used to be."
