CD REVIEW – AJ+CPO – Hymns

If your looking for a new take on some old classic hymns, some good friends of mine have released an amazing compilation of hymns done in a fantastic new/old style.

AJ+CPO The Hymns Collaboration

AJ Degrasse plays piano and does he ever play! My favorite is Chopin’s Nocturne combined with Fairest Lord Jesus. You have to hear it to appreciate the beautiful intertwining melodies.

Chris Paul Overall’s (or CPO) vocals soar and scream in harmony and melody especially on I Surrender All.

Their original – Sweeter the Pain is a heartfelt take on Job’s suffering:
“Sweet Isolation, sweeter the pain,
Though he would slay me,
My hope remains…”

I love this album, I listen to it all the time. Check it out on itunes or their myspace
