Hymns & Harmony – Review by Paul Davis

HYMNS & HARMONY

ISLAND IMAGE RECORDS, IIR007

Reveiwed by Paul Davis

What a gem! If ever devotional repertoire received from generations-past conjured up the well-beloved nostalgia of ‘tried-and-tested’ chapel-life, it is that of the celebrated evangelical hymnal. Nowadays, as this great hymnal set from the Harcus Family illustrates – the material is far from dead-and-buried.

This easy-on-the-ear Scots’ country-offering is a wonderful and sensitive collection of hymns drawn from the last couple of centuries plus the more recent Southern Gospel store. Many of these songs were born out of the traumatic experiences but, this is an optimistic and hope-filled mix drenched in the folk-musical modernity of the Orkney Islands.

Passion is hot and high, engaging and inspirational.
