Selah’s new two-volume compilation, Greatest Hymns (buy), brings beloved Christian classics together with Selah’s signature harmonies and slight Celtic influences in a beautiful vocal package. Nearly twelve years after their initial Vol. 1 release, the acclaimed trio now offer fans an incredible 33-song package, anchored by timeless favorites like “Be Thou My Vision,” “When I Survey The Wondrous Cross,” “I Surrender All,” “Just As I Am” and many more. It also features a radio cut of “O The Blood,” from the group’s 2014 album You Amaze Us. While this package can feel a bit sleepy over time and lacks the groups dynamism that come from more upbeat tracks, this is still a beautiful vocal offering that should find a home with hymn appreciators and Selah’s own longtime fan base.
