I am working on our family devotions/worship for this coming year and have decided to listen to hymns during dinner prep. We did it today and it was super great. So, I was wondering what you ladies have in your music collections as your favorite hymn CDs. Thank you for sharing!
Hymns for a Kid’s Heart book and CD
Sarah Mac Intosh – Hymns Part 1 (alas – she hasn’t made part 2 yet! 🙁 )
I bought this for Ken at Christmas and we LOVE it – Wow Hymns
I’ve heard Alan Jackson’s Hymn CD is great too.
And here’s the play list we use for Hymn study on youtube. We change the order every night, but we like the versions on there.
We’ve noticed that we really enjoy Chris Rice’s versions of Hymns – so he must have a hymn cd!
Chris Rice’s Peace Like a River
Fernando Ortega’s The Breaking of the Dawn
We have a cd a friend made where he set old hymns (like Abide with Me) to new tunes, which he wrote. We love this one, too.
…Laurabora, I’m enjoying listening to your youtube play list…thanks!
i use a CD by Koine. (one of the band members Grandma is a member of my church, and they came and did a free concert for us one summer) We love it.
I also got 101 Hymn STories with CD that tells some of the history of the authors the some of the better known hymns. But we are very traditional, conservative Lutheran.
I sometimes use this website: http://songsandhymns.org/hymns/ You can download a hymn, the 5 minute weekly radio message, & sheet music. It also includes hymn facts, scripture, a devotional, and the hymn story.
I’m enjoying all the above suggestions. I like to mix it up with traditional, contemporary, and children’s hymns. Does anyone have any acappella hymns to suggest?
Thank you all for your suggestions! I had such a good time listening to them all on Amazon and adding them to my wish list. I love, love, love hymns, be it contemporary, country, traditional, instramental, etc. All good stuff! And thank you Treasure House for the website. That is really nifty and handy to have all that info together for a hymn!
