CD: CONNIE HOUSE – The Old Hymns

The Old Hymns
Love To Tell A Story – The Old Rugged Cross – He Keeps Me Singing – In
The Garden – Softly and Tenderly – Just A Closer Walk With Thee – It Is
No Secret – Have Thine Own Way – Sweet Hour Of Prayer – When We All Get
To Heaven
couple of weeks ago I reviewed a CD by Connie & Don House.  I
mentioned that I thought Connie was the better of the singers, so lo and
behold here comes a CD by just Connie, and it’s a solo project with
just her singing.  The first song out is her lovely voice backed by just
an autoharp, which goes into a sort of big-band sound, but what a sweet
sounding gospel song it is.  “The Old Rugged Cross” is a similar
project, but the truth and the simple beauty of the song is well
portrayed by Connie in this version.   Another one I really like is “In
The Garden” which Connie does with a beautiful vibrato in her voice. 
Very dignified and quite lovely to listen to.  “Just A Closer Walk With
Thee” brings on an electric guitar with an interesting rhythm pattern. 
Sounds great.  Connie’s voice is right in there, just as it should be. 
Harmony joins in on “It Is No Secret,” and Connie once again proves her
wonderful ability to sing the song just like it should be sung. She
closes the CD with a great version of “When We All Get To Heaven.” 
Perfect ending song to a great old-time gospel CD.  This one goes to the
Rural Roots Music Commission.”  Connie helps at the LeMars festival,
doing sound on the gospel stage, so I certainly hope we get to hear some
of these great songs there.  She is also going to make a presentation
on the Ghost Town Stage performing a recitation she composed called
“Here’s Boston.”  Sounds great to me.  Five stars on this CD, it’s
great.  Contact this lovely gospel vocalist at house.constance@live.com
