“Following what has become something of a standard rite of passage for vocal groups devoted to the music of the medieval and Renaissance periods, the four-voice female ensemble Anonymous 4 here explores the sacred hymnody of 18th- and 19th century America….while their sometimes mannered delivery is occasionally a slight distraction, it never detracts significantly from the beauty of these great melodies, and the creamy perfection of their blend and purity and sweetness of their voices are an utter delight. Many of the songs on this program are standards and will be familiar to those who have spent any amount of time in a Protestant church, especially in the South: ‘Sweet Hour of Prayer’ is one of the great hymns of the American church, and ‘Wondrous Love’ and ‘Holy Manna’ are both revival classics. Very highly recommended.“
