Reviewed by Brendan O'Regan

Don't let the front sleeve credit make you think that the popular TV presenter is suddenly breaking into song. This is a double CD compilation of popular hymns sung by various UK choirs - The London Fox Choir is the most prominent, but there are also the Choirs of the cathedrals of Ely, Edmundsbury, Norwich, Manchester, Wakefield, Llandaff, Newcastle and Gloucester. There are no surprises here, no modernisation, no experimentation, just the hymns sung well and pitched at the mass viewership of BBC's Songs Of Praise. Many of these tracks were recorded in churches and have that distinctive natural reverb sound while the church organ dominates the musical background. There are some familiar classics like "How Great Thou Art" and "Amazing Grace" but also some contemporary material like "In Christ Alone" by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend. Apart from choosing the hymns and lending her name there's not much indication of Pam Rhodes' role in the project, but there is a book to be purchased separately, Love So Amazing: 40 Reflections On My Favourite Hymns.

40 hymns chosen by the BBC presenter and sung by various choirs.

“Hymns are prayers in our pockets”, writes Pam Rhodes, expressing how hymns help us to respond to God.

Pam brings together 40 recordings of her favourite hymns. Drawing on her experience of presenting Songs of Praise, these recordings encourage us to express our joys and sorrows to God, and ultimately find a hope and inspiration within their poetic verse. Whatever our circumstances, these hymns turn us again to the God who created, knows and sustains us with that “love so amazing” described in the immortal words of hymn writer Isaac Watts.

The second disc in this album "Love so Amazing" has an entirely different selection to those listed above Nos 21-40. This is abysmal production and "Elevation" who produced the disc should be ashamed.
