Hymns & Voices (1990)

Updated: May 25

Hymns & Voices is the ninth studio album by Scottish Christian singer - author Sheila Walsh, released in the fall of 1990 on Word Records. Walsh once again collaborated with producer Greg Nelson on this collection of well-known traditional hymns, most of the songs sung in a cappella. The album features the voices of studio singers such as Marty McCall and Melodie Tunney of First Call, Mike Eldred, Lisa Glasgow, Guy Penrod, Mary George and Gary Robinson among others and strings provided by the Orchestra of St. John's Smith Square in Central London, England, U.K. and was recorded at St. Barnabas Church in London. Jeremy Lubbock arranged and composed the orchestral opening, segues and coda.

A three-song video EP of Hymns & Voices was released on VHS in 1991. The album was reissued in 2002 as The Hymns Collection on Aslan Entertainment with an updated CD cover and two additional tracks: "Be Thou My Vision" and a re-recording of the Say So track "Trapeze," both produced by Derald Daugherty of the Christian alternative rock band The Choir and John Hartley. This is also Walsh's final album on Word Records.
