MY COMMENTS
This recording is a re-release of old Hymns Triumphant series. Volume 1 is the one that I have been playing on Old Christian Radio since this station has been on the air. Each volume was a two record set. (Total of 4 records for both volumes). This one is also one of my favorite recordings in my library that I personally love to listen to. I'm glad that Sparrow Records re-released it in a 2 CD set so I can make it available for the purchase to the listeners of Old Christian Radio. 

Volume 1's individual songs were divided as themes. When I played music from Volume 1... I would combine a theme's respective group of songs together and played them as one track. This is because many of the individual songs were often too short for "single song" air play.  Also, the original records did not divide the songs nor the themes. I had to find the dividing lines and break them up as themes when I made a CD master (of Volume 1) for the station library.

Volume II has it's song themes divided as individual tracks. 

The message inside the CD cover reads...
Selecting particular sacred songs for the Hymns Triumphant Series has proven to be at once more private and yet less personal that I first thought it would be. The process of choosing the hymns refuses to remain a simple selection of personal favorites for very long. Very quickly, more connected currents of thought come to direct the flow. These currents inevitably reflect themes that have always been close to the surface of this vast hymn reservoir through the ages - a reservoir of musical and spiritual inspiration that is always renewing itself.

Hymn singing - regardless of the scale of its setting - remains an ever-meaningful worship experience for every Christian. Whether it is a small family gathered around an old upright piano, or a huge congregation flanked by a grand pipe organ and massive choir, the intensity of the expression is of the same high level. Hymns offer praise and thanksgiving to God, reflecting man's most spiritual feelings in a triumphant celebration of worship.

Hymns Triumphant I is that kind of celebration, carried to a grand symphonic level, yet never tempering with the traditional melodies and harmonies of the hymns it encompasses. A full orchestra and a trained 100-voice choir perform them here in unifying medleys, relating each to a thought perfectly expressed in "The Lord's Prayer". Grand orchestral introductions, endings and transitional passages thus frame, with artistic beauty, the basic structure of each traditional expression of worship to form one body of work we call a "symphonic choral suite". This Lee Holdridge-arranged work reflects its fullest glory, however, when used as a setting for a participatory hymn sing-a-long. For its intended audience to none other than God. And His living worship is the ultimate triumphant performance.

With Hymns Triumphant II, each medley of hymns came to express a particular triumph -- The Triumph of the Christian Life. This specific theme has been even triumphed over time itself. One of the hymns here survives from the 8th century. While many of these selections are 18th and 19th century American hymns, it is my hope that Volume II will triumph over distance as well - serving as a setting for sing-a-long participation. Lee Holdridge's orchestrations once again lend to a contemporary dignity of classic proportions to these hymns of the church. The Christian world chares both a common and yet uncommon heritage of triumph in our hymns. I invite you to share it again and again through the timeless examples of all our highest hopes and deepest inspirations.
