From the opening strains of "This Is my Father's World," Legacy... Hymns & Faith wraps around you like a well-worn quilt from Grandma's attic. Hearing too-seldom-sung hymns like "My Jesus, I Love Thee," and "It is Well with my Soul" given new life by Amy Grant's familiar voice is a rare gift--one you might never have thought to ask for but upon opening cry, "it's just what I wanted!"While Legacy traces Grant's past, growing up under the church's protective wing, it also echoes her present and future with Gill's fingerprints found all over the recording. While not a full-fledged country album, it teeters on the edge of that genre, while flirting with bluegrass and old-time Gospel as well. And why not? This album is about heritage and Grant has spent her entire life in Nashville, so it's only natural that a little of that twang would have seeped into her soul. She really leaves you thinking that her life, while tragic at times, is all about living for Jesus and leaving her impact on history.Legacy's 14 tracks cover 20 songs, blending the time-tested with four timely new tunes. Sure to garner the most buzz is the confessional "What You Already Own," penned by Grant. Of the classics she revisits, "Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing" is given the most dramatic makeover as a wonderfully lazy country tune that brings to mind a summer Sunday afternoon.Like a good church service, Legacy ends with a congregational sing-a-long, this time in the form of "Marching to Zion," with Grant joining a choir of family and friends. And as the bagpipes' sorrowful song trails off, the feeling of "having church" is so real you almost expect to hear a pastoral benediction before being dismissed.
