I am a lover of music. Mainly hymns but also southern gospel and classical music. So I was really overjoyed to be able to review the upcoming release, Hymn Revival, from Gold City. Anyone who listens to southern gospel knows the name Gold City. A group that has come through a lot and been around for ages. I have seen them go through many ups and downs but really glad when Tim Riley returned to join the group as bass singer. This CD releases on August 19th and I am sure many of you will enjoy this new look at old hymns!
The song list includes many older titles such as Nothing But the Blood, I Must Tell Jesus, He Hideth My Soul, Power in the Blood, and Great is Thy Faithfulness. I have to admit, my favorites would be a three-way tie between Nothing But The Blood, Power of the Cross and Great is Thy Faithfulness. There are some powerful songs, tender and soft tunes, along with a few jazzy styles. The person who follows Gold City will be in for a treat. And you can't go wrong with a strong quartet sound like you have with this CD. The piano playing is also a big hit on some of these.
So anyone interested in purchasing a new CD will definitely want to look at this one. Hymn Revival is a classic quartet hymns recording that came out very well. Loved the songs!!
