    The results are lush and slick, classy but not over-cautious, and the album fits snugly into Lennox's body of work. And yet, for all of its undoubted strengths, the record only intermittently stirs the soul.

    One new track, "universal Child," fails to lighten the mood. [Jan 2011, p.94]

    This is so heartfelt and pure. In interviews, Lennox reports how personal this project to her, and it shows. Each arrangement breaths new lifeThis is so heartfelt and pure. In interviews, Lennox reports how personal this project to her, and it shows. Each arrangement breaths new life into the hymns. The inclusion of the African choir and other various styles, including country dance and folk, work, in a way few other compilations have, to remind us that these songs, like the glorious events and season most of them describe, are meant for all the world. This is simply beautiful, and seemingly more intentionally crafted than anything Ms. Lennox has done so far. Thank you for this! Full Review »
