Several years ago, when I lived in the Lancaster, PA area, I became familiar with the Gospel Group, Brothers In Grace. Over the years I spent in that area I got to know the group and its members, and I watched the group evolve into a very solid male quartet. I have reviewed several of their projects in this space over the years and I always look forward to receiving new music from them! Their latest effort is titled “Singing The Mighty Power” and it is another good one from Brothers In Grace.
The project begins with a rousing a cappella version of “I Sing The Mighty Power Of God.” I always enjoy a good a cappella song and this one is great! A quartet classic is next on the project as the guys tackle “The Old Country Church.” Brothers In Grace does a nice job singing this song written by the late J. D. Sumner. This project is heavy on songs that were previously recorded by the Cathedral Quartet and that is fine by me. “An Old Convention Song” is one of those songs and you will enjoy this version as the song takes us back to those old days of Singing Conventions. The next song on the project is “He Sought Me Again” and it is a beautiful song reminding us that God is always nearby even when we stumble, and He is always ready to extend His Mercy and Grace and to forgive us again.
“Step Into The Water” is probably the biggest song that the Cathedrals ever recorded and a number of other groups have also recorded this song over the years. Brothers In Grace has included their version on this project and you will enjoy it! It is also one of four songs that is recorded with Bobby Gernert. “I Still Get A Feeling” continues with the up-tempo songs and what a celebration of the fact that it won’t be long before Jesus calls us home! “I Thirst” is another of the former Cathedral songs on this project and the guys do a nice job singing this beautiful melody. Another song that might be labeled a modern classic is next with “My Name Is Lazarus.” The song has always been one of the more unique songs in Gospel Music and has one of the very best messages that I have ever heard. The guys do a nice job communicating this song and you will enjoy it quite a lot!
One of my all-time favorite songs is “The Son Shines Down On Me” and Brothers In Grace includes that song next on their project. What a great reminder of the comfort we feel when sheltered in the arms of Jesus. Next on the project is a beautiful song titled “You Can’t Fix It.” The song reminds that there are a lot of things in life that we can’t fix but there is one who can fix them and His name is Jesus. Another a cappella song is next as the guys sing the old hymn “My Savior First Of All.” I have always loved that hymn and this a very fine version of that great old song. The project ends with the grand and glorious declaration that “Jesus Saves.” What a great proclamation that we can share that message with everyone we meet. Jesus Saves and we should want the world to know that! It is a great ending to the project.
Brothers In Grace has delivered another terrific project that is pleasing to listening to and will bless the listener. While most of the songs are familiar, it is great to hear them again and to hear the versions of the songs from this fine quartet. My favorite songs from the project are; “The Old Country Church,” “He Sought Me Again” and “My Name Is Lazarus.” The entire project is very good and includes 12 songs that are of various subjects, styles and tempos. The project is also one that fans of Brothers In Grace will enjoy for many years to come. For more information on Brothers In Grace, visit their website at www.brothersingrace.com.
