Legacy...Hymns & Faith

Lead Performer: Amy Grant; Producer (group): A&M

This might be more credible as a labor of love if Grant bothered to credit the late, great songwriters who composed the 18th- and 19th-century hymns that make up most of the album. (Four newer songs suffer no such anonymity.) Slights toward Isaac Watts aside, there’s enough stylistic diversity – Americana, Celtic rock, and Lanoisesque chamber music, as well as Sunday-morning solemnity – to make Legacy transcend your average trip down Methodist memory lane.
