Classic performance
Bill Cleland | Winchester, Indiana | 03/05/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"At age 51 I feel qualified to critique Mahalia Jackson. If you really know her you have to admire her. Power and the Glory is just what it says: simply put "she's the mother of them all." Her voice in this is incredibly beautiful. Unparalled! It's not gospel as a specific genre--but it is sacred music at its best. Percy Faith drove her to her highest heights. She outperformed herself. She won awards for it and rightly so. Who else sounds like an archangel? This album proves this: if you have faith in God and in yourself, the sky is the limit. Listen and see! Her "Rock Of Ages" is the most sublime ever."
Powerfull and Glorious

"The Power & The Glory is not Gospel; it is a collection of beautiful old hymns that Mahalia makes her own and sings them with such incredible power and majesty all who listen will be taken to another place, a beautiful place. This album must rate as a musical masterpiece."
Onward, Christian Soldiers
Dwayne | Maryland | 07/08/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The first 2 songs were excellent choices for starters. When Mahalia sings "Onward Christian Soldiers," it actually feels as if she is ordering you to join her 'Christian soldiers."If I begin to talk about "The Holy City," I will run out of room and I will not be able to finish. This is one of the most beautiful songs that I've ever heard. I don't cry too often when it comes to songs, but it actually brought a couple (only a couple, I promise...hahaha!) of tears to my eyes.A Great Buy"
