Reviewed by Stephen Luff

The vocalist from Sixpence None The Richer returns with this collection of updated hymns with help on two tracks from Chris Eaton ("Oh Heart Bereaved And Lonely" and "Praise The Lord Who Reigns Above"). Producer John Hartley (Phil And John, and the Apostles Creed album), now based in Nashville, adds his expertise on what to these ears was a pleasant surprise! It is an easy trap to fall into when faced with a track list mainly made up of lyrics largely written in the 18th and 19th centuries, to think that the album would not sound relevant to the 21st century listener! How wrong you would be. The opener "Saviour Like A Shepherd Lead Us" begins with banjo which would feel at home with Mumford And Sons, "Isaiah 55" equally sounds up to date with its guitar opening. Sometimes the arrangements do not work so well, the Victorian music box opening on "Come Thou Fount Of Every Blessing" becomes irritating after a few listens! Outstanding tracks include the more recent "Out Of My Bondage" with its great acoustic opening, and the atmospheric closing track "Be Still My Soul" with its heart stirring lyrics and call to faith. This album will get attention because of Leigh's beautiful vocals and its EMI distribution, but it deserves it also for the wealth of majestic lyrics contained within.

An updating of old hymns from the Sixpence singer.

From the voice of Sixpence None the Richer comes a new album soaked in authenticity. Hymns and Sacred Songs is more than a collection of classic hymns reimagined - though it does that brilliantly. Instead these twelve tracks unite to form an album that draws the listener in to raw, honest worship.

Leigh Nash is known by millions for the Sixpence hit Kiss Me and subsequent albums, as well as a run of successful solo projects. But when it comes to Hymns and Sacred Songs we’re talking about something entirely different.
