A gorgeous book that shares the stories of how and where some of Christianity's favorite hymns were written. The photographs of England and Wales are breathtaking. It's a beautiful coffee table-type book and one that I have enjoyed reading and perusing on many a Sunday morning as I wait to go to church.
The CD that is included is wonderful. Ray Walker's version of Amazing Grace gives me chills and the choral version of Abide with Me is simply stunning.
My only complaint is that I wish the captions were included with each photo. There is a listing of photo captions at the back of the book, but I wish that each photo was captioned on its page. This is a beautiful addition to any music lover's library.
