I have been going through all of these Harvard classics and this was just beautiful.

Lovely

(4 Sterne)

I really enjoyed this short book of hymns. The hymns spanned the centuries from early church history to the time of publication, which I guess to be in the late 1800's or early 1900's. I wasn't familiar with many of the hymns, and while most of the narrators were good, there were a few I didn't like as much. But I'm very happy that I listened to it, and will probably return to it again in the future.
