If there was ever any doubt that Greg Nelson was the ultimate producer for Sandi Patty's albums, this magnificent collection of inspirational treasures puts that question to rest. The unique energy and worship that bless every Sandi Patty concert are alive and kicking on this beautifully arranged and packaged disc that will sing in a thousand churches by singers and choirs in the years to come. While the orchestrations of David Clydesdale are missed, there is a fresh approach to the stylings that is welcome and winning. "Alleluia" is an indication that songwriter Rick Vale and Sandi Patty are a match made in heaven. If the ages 18-24 only demographically obsessed Christian radio stations would expand the horizons of this recording with some airplay, this album could take on a life of its own. Falling Forward...
This album is everything I hoped it would be and then some! It is full of magnificent crescendos, orchestral swells, rhythm, spunk, and those diva-esque, operatic, thrilling high notes that made Sandi Patty the 5-time Grammy, 39-Dove Award-winning wonder that she is. There is no voice like hers, and Sandi delivers it in all its might in this album. from "Wonderful One" (which made me want to stop the car and dance in traffic) to the insurpassible high-brow, high-class polish of "The Majesty and Glory of Your Name: and "Take Hold of Christ," Sandi's latest release really packs a wallop! There's something for everyone here! From the dignified patron of Symphony Hall to the tambourine clapping church member who wants to rise to their feet in jubilant praise, no one could go away from hearing this album without finding a song that is sung as if it were meant for their ears only! Classy, awe-inspiring, and full of sincere faith sung from a heart that really...
It has been a number of years since Sandi Patty hit the Christian music charts with such inspirational favorites as "Was It a Morning Like This," "How Majestic is Your Name," and a number of other top 10 hits. Since that time, she has had some incredible music in the CCM genre, but with "Take Hold of Christ," Sandi's return to her inspirational roots is certainly very refreshing to say the least! I grew up a fan of the operatic sounding Queen of Christian Music, and fell in love with her ability to bring her audience into powerful praise and worship. I have always been convinced Sandi Patty will be the lead vocalist in Heaven's choir, but with this album, her return to heavenly sounds of praise and worship are evident. Even during her more contemporary sounding years, Sandi continued to prove she has an incredible gift and ability to convey a strong Christian message. But, her most admirable work has always been her praise and worship format...
