EDITORS’ NOTES

With echoing, Gaelic undertones, this hymns project owes its simplicity to Audrey Assad’s Plymouth Brethren roots (where voices were the only instrumentation), and its liturgy to her current Catholic faith. Drums on the otherwise stark “Be Thou My Vision” prove a welcome surprise, while Assad’s “I Wonder as I Wander” conjures earthy images of faraway forests. “Even Unto Death,” penned with pal Matt Maher, is fragile and fearless, and her dewy version of “Holy, Holy, Holy” breathes new life into old lyrics.

Rare mix of old and new

Inheritance is that rare album that taps into something that seems so deeply rooted and ancient, yet is at the same time something brimming with new life. This is what and who God is, and it overflows in this soundscape of song and chant.

Can’t recommend this album highly enough, especially for the person who has trouble praying and could use something beautiful to provoke contemplation of God and with God.

Audrey voice calls us to worship our creator

Audrey has a truly amazing gift in that she can emote joy, love, pain and sorrow through - all in one breath - through the angelic tones in her voice. Truly astounding!

The Best Yet!

Since Audrey left the big labels 3 years ago she has been refining and forging her craft. After researching her motivations and convictions for this album, and listening to the pre-order songs available, I am convinced that this is her best album yet. Reverent, liturgical, but from the heart and genuine to a unprecedented degree.
