On their latest album Hymns Of The Faith, veteran Gospel group, The Talleys, take the beauty and simplicity of well-known hymns and enhance them with vocal talent and sincerity. By honoring the hymns' original character, one of Christian music's most beloved families has created a powerful collection sure to inspire reverent worship and prayerful reflection, even outside of church walls.
"Having grown up in church, I knew the hymns before I could read and before I could grasp their meaning. The words of the songs were etched in my heart and mind," says Debra Talley. "So when struggles and disappointments came, those inspired lyrics rose up within me and I would find myself singing the words I had long ago hidden in my heart."
The Talleys deliver familiar, meaningful messages, allowing listeners to find comfort in the words of favorite hymns like "Shout To The Lord / How Great Thou Art," "Great Is Thy Faithfulness," and "I Love To Tell The Story / Blessed Assurance." The group's harmonies shine on a cappella versions of other well-known hymns like "Oh Glorious Love," "I Will Sing Of My Redeemer," "Pass Me Not," "When Jesus Breaks The Morning," and "Be Still My Soul."
"Amazing Grace" closes the album with an arrangement that carries the hymn's message with strength and elegance.
"The songs chosen for Hymns Of The Faith were chosen for this reason: to encourage, inspire, comfort, and to rejoice with you in your journey," says Debra. "Let these timeless lyrics sink deep in your soul as you listen to Hymns Of The Faith. You might even find yourself singing along!"
