"Please excuse me for a moment while I hyperventilate. That's better! I have looked far and wide for such a cd as this and presto it's here. P-R-A-I-S-E G-O-D!With the way that comptempory music is taking over, I was wondering if anyone would ever go back to our Christian roots and record a cd of old tunes. You know the ones that most of us cut our teeth on. Praise God again for this cd.There is a lot of specific things that need to be said about this cd. First, I would like to address the repertoire. I have never heard such great tunes. These tunes really, really blow me away. They really help me focus on Jesus and his ministry and what he wants for you and me.Next, I would like to talk about the musical director. For this cd Ralph Carmichael was given the honors of writing the arrangements. Boy what a beautiful job he did. I feel like God was looking over his shoulder with every note that was written.
Ralph is probably the best Christian arranger out there today. We need to hear more of his music!I have often wondered "What Happened To Olde Tyme Religion" and had hoped that someone someday would address this question with a song. Maybe if Ralph reads this review he will answer my plea and write such a tune. In conclusion I would like to epress the fact that God is alive and well. He just wants you and I to come into his kingdom and serve him. "T-H-E S-A-V-I-O-R I-S W-A-I-T-I-N-G""
