Praise Moments: New Music from Audrey Assad


CM Praise Moments

This week’s Praise Moment is a double duet: Audrey Assad and Sarah Kroger perform two old favorites, “I Wonder As I Wander” and “How Can I Keep from Singing?”

As heard on Audrey Assad’s new album, Inheritance Deluxe Edition, which was released October 7, this duet of hymns re-imagines classic hymns with beautiful arrangements and haunting vocals but without destroying the integrity of the hymns themselves. Several of the 16 songs were arranged by composer and cellist Cara Fox, then recorded live, accompanied by harp, drums, electric guitar, violin and cello.

Most songs on the album are familiar, but two are original compositions by Audrey Assad and Matt Maher.

I could listen to this music all day. I have, actually, spent hours listening to the album preview.

This album is available on iTunes or at
