Very digitized sound. Not at all what I was expecting. If you are looking for traditional, orchestral arrangements of old hymns, keep looking. This CD collection takes the old-fashioned hymns and tries to modernize their sound, adding digitization and, in some cases, percussion. It does not work.
Today with the drawing away from some of the "Older Hymns" it leaves a vacuum in the appreciation of the culture that we grew up in. I like instrumental music because it helps me have the background of hymns playing but does not distract me from preparing for my Radio Program or in studying a lesson for my Adult Sunday School class. The 3-D set includes some great hymns that I grew up with and truly appreciate to whom they draw attention too.
I love the CD; music is excellent. The quality is rated fair because the titles didn't match the order on the CD. A replacement was "sent," however the package arrived with only the packing slip. Another one has been sent; I'm awaiting its arrival. Since it was to be a gift, I didn't want one that wasn't labeled properly. The music is very soothing and pleasant. I'll need to go through all 100 songs and relabel them on my playlist so I can sing-a-long. I would definitely recommend it to a friend if labeled correctly. Customer service regarding this matter has been excellent! Merry CHRISTmas! Have a safe and joyful Holiday Season and 2013! Aloha, Lynn
