Cd

With his success on AC radio, and the success of both Amusing and What A Heart Is Beating For, Chris Rice made sure not to leave his roots behind and produced the album, PEACE LIKE A RIVER: THE HYMNS PROJECT. "As a kid sitting on a pew week after week, I had no idea how important these great hymns would be to my faith. I miss the days when our songs were written to teach and preserve theology rather than to become a radio hit. From great theologians come the songs sung to strengthen and remind each other of the peace and freedom to come, I hope these hymns will remind you of the great truths they contain." - Chris Rice. PEACE LIKE A RIVER: THE HYMNS PROJECT features ‘It Is Well With My Soul,’ ‘A Mighty Fortress,’ ‘How Great Thou Art,’ and more.

Grateful for this album
5 stars By Julz, May 01 2013
I am grateful for this album, as I love hymns but want to listen to them in modern music and Chris Rice has cleverly done this. I agree with Chris Rice in that the hymns were written to preserve doctrine, instead of being the radio hit. My favourite song in this album is Rock of Ages.

Sheer joy
5 stars By Dawn, Nov 13 2012
This beautiful collection of old hymns is soothing and uplifting. The arrrangements by Chris Rice are fresh and sincere yet nothing is taken away from the authenticity of old favourites. There is a wonderful spirituality about 'It is well with my soul' and 'Rock of ages' - they send shivers through me every time I listen. If you enjoy peace and calm, you'll love this CD.

Modern takes on classic hymns
4 stars By Justin, Oct 26 2007
The latest offering from Chris Rice is a project full of beautiful arrangements of classic hymns.  Rice has chosen to go the acoustic route on this album, with simple piano and acoustic guitar lines intermingling with the timeless poetry of these well known hymns.  The 'less is more' approach really works with the stripped back versions allowing the listener to focus on the words, as well as the simple and beautiful melodies.  If you like Shawn McDonald of the Sons of Korah make sure you check out this album.
