Be prepared for strange surprises!!June 19, 2012By J. MacLeod (Cambridge, ON)See All My Reviews"The singing of the American Boychoir is impeccable and their performances on these hymns is consistently of a very high standard. Why,then, the low rating? The problem is that interspersed with these fine, classically inspired performances are bands featuring country and western musicians. I am not qualified to judge this style of music. To me, it seemed excessive sentimental, occasionally crossing over into mawkish and very edgy. The vocal style of the C/W professionals undeniably provided a stark contrast with the boys' singing, but not a good one. I think the presence of these performers should have been made much clearer on the CD sleeve.If on the other hand, you like the treble sound interspersed with country twang, this is the album for you."Report Abuse
