In Feast or Fallow Gives Modern Voice to Hymns
- Tuesday, July 20, 2010
Artist: Sandra McCracken
Title: In Feast or Fallow
Label: Towhee Records
Understanding the church's hunger for classic liturgy, singer/songwriter Sandra McCracken compiles her second hymns recording, delicately refashioning historic, sacred songs by replacing their antiquated musical contexts with a modern voice. Sways of acoustic guitars, swelling mellotrons and timely strings provide hallowed space for McCracken. And though a 15-track set list is a bit cumbersome, McCracken's charming creative drive and definitive folk demeanor overrides the potential overload to create a completely inspired final product.
