Arden, North Carolina â€” 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 hymnsâ€™ original character, one of Christian musicâ€™s most beloved families has created a powerful collection sure to inspire reverent worship and prayerful reflection, even outside of church walls.
â€œHaving 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,â€ says Debra Talley. Â â€œSo 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.â€
The Talleys deliver familiar, meaningful messages, allowing listeners to find comfort in the words of favorite hymns like â€œShout To The Lord / How Great Thou Art,â€ â€œGreat Is Thy Faithfulness,â€ and â€œI Love To Tell The Story / Blessed Assurance.â€ The groupâ€™s harmonies shine on a cappella versions of other well-known hymns like â€œOh Glorious Love,â€ â€œI Will Sing Of My Redeemer,â€ â€œPass Me Not,â€ â€œWhen Jesus Breaks The Morning,â€ and â€œBe Still My Soul.â€
â€œAmazing Graceâ€ closes the album with an arrangement that carries the hymnâ€™s message with strength and elegance.
â€œThe songs chosen for Hymns Of The Faith were chosen for this reason: to encourage, inspire, comfort, and to rejoice with you in your journey,â€ says Debra. â€œLet these timeless lyrics sink deep in your soul as you listen to Hymns Of The Faith. You might even find yourself singing along!â€
